Local Food

Here's a shoutout to the Post's Food section today, which is just chock full of local restaurant news told in a sophisticated big city way.

Today, for instance, we learn that Tracy O'Grady, the exec chef at Arlington's Willow, is getting raves for her new signature dish...a miniature rack of pork stuffed with sausage. Frank Morales, the exec chef at Rustico Restaurant and Bar in Alexandria, has invented something that might be called the Hopsicle, frozen beer on a stick. Johnny Monis, the chef at Dupont Circle's Komi, has been named one of the 10 best new chefs by Food & Wine magazine.

And we appreciate the "Dinner in 15 Minutes" feature, where this week Bonnie Benwick not only tells us how to make salmon with figs, saba and watercress, but tells us where to buy the saba (which is some kind of Italian maple syrup).
