Tom Sietsema's 2008 Dining Guide Debuts
Our favorite restaurant critic releases his annual Dining Guide this week -- and it's pretty great, if we do say so ourselves. From a Thai kitchen in Wheaton to a little place you might have heard of down in Washington, Va., Tom showcases the diversity of the region's dining scene.
There are some pretty big headlines -- Komi gets a fourth star! Citronelle's down to three! And is that a fast-food place on the list? But for me, Tom's brief reports on trends in the local dining scene is where this year's guide really shines. Some of my personal faves -- Proof and Cork -- get their own reviews in the guide, but also turn up in his story on local wine bars. Pizza purveyors get their due in a story about those who make the best pies and burgers both humble and gourmet are exalted in a piece on the burger boom. Regular blog readers know I just can't resist a little Hell-Burger, so here's videographer Liz Langton's inside peek at how the patties are made at that Arlington joint.
Take a look at this year's choices and let us know what you think in the comments below. Better yet, you can Ask Tom yourself; he'll answer questions about the guide in an online discussion next Wednesday.
