In 2012, it felt like at least one new restaurant or tremendous market opened in or around the District each week.
But these are the kitchens that lured us back for seconds (and thirds).
Flake out with a cuppie: Pie Sisters of Georgetown
Have a taste of Campania: Menomale
Hit the links: Three Little Pigs
Have your steak and donate, too: Cause
Rock out with your cod out: Eamonn’s
Try a cinnamon candy-topped salad: Mayfair & Pine
The most elegant way to eat the whole box: Macaron Bee
A pair of holey rollers: Astro and District Doughnuts
Crude awakening on Capitol Hill: Sapore Oil & Vinegar
Excuse for dining at home on weeknights: Scratch DC
Until we dish again.
