We know. You haven't nominated your favorite dish in the Washington area for our annual hit-list of D.C. foodstuffs because you've been too busy gorging at the dozens of new restaurants that opened in the past year.

No time for nominating. Too much wood-fired pizza. We get it.

But now's your chance. In this week's Got Plans? chat, we'll share a few of the nominations we've already received and invite you to skewer them (ha!), give them your approval or trump them with your own best D.C. dish. Submit your early nomination below, or join us Thursday at 1 p.m.
