To get everyone into the holiday spirit on a day when most of the restaurant industry is stuck working, it’s time to pay tribute to the working-class heroes who dressed up for Halloween. (It’s anEaterDCtradition.)

Seven Washington-area establishments rank among the 100 highest grossing independent restaurants in the country, according to an annual list from Restaurant Business magazine. Old Ebbitt Grill, ranked #5, brings in the most annual sales in DC: more than $32 million. That’s over $2 million more than the previous year. The downtown saloon has remained in the […]
Community Farmers Markets—a nonprofit network that likely includes at least one of your favorite Atlanta farmers markets—is hosting its inaugural Red Clay Soirée fundraising gala on Friday, November 10. The list of participants reads like, well, a list of the people making much of the finest food and drink in the city right now. (Full disclosure: We’re also the official media sponsor for the event.) “We wanted to work with people who aren’t the big names like Hugh Acheson or [Staplehouse chef] Ryan Smith, but the rising stars,” says Katie Hayes, CFM’s executive director. “These are the people who are ...
The updated Indian street food restaurant debuts November 6
Rammy Award-winning restaurateur Ashok Bajaj has chosen to go bigger and broader at the new Bindaas he’s unveiling Monday, November 6 — an evolution that might never have happened if he’d begun experimenting with Indian street food in Foggy Bottom as originally planned.
Bajaj tells Eater that he looked into planting the original Bindaas in the exact same neighborhood (2000 Pennsylvania Avenue NW) — with its proximity to meal-seeking World Bank workers, International Monetary Fund employees, and George Washington University students — a while back. But at that point the landlord wanted too much in rent. So he shipped it to growing hospitality graveyard Cleveland Park, which Bajaj said desperately needed a shot in the arm.
A year later, he’s returned to the hospitality scene he always had in mind for Bindaas with a proven product, a fresh look, and a handful of new menu items.
The latest addition to the Knightsbridge Restaurant Group (Bombay Club, Rasika, Oval Room, among others) features a dedicated bar — think: $12 drinks including tequila sweetened by tamarind-honey puree, or saffron-infused rum cut with spiced lemon-lime syrup — two communal tables that flank the open kitchen, and a funky looking dining room. According to Bajaj, the decor is intended to mimic “diners and cafes in cosmopolitan cities across India.”
Striking photos (Indian women assembled at a wedding; travelers on camelback crossing in front of the Himalayas; a ceremonial procession featuring elephants decked out in colorful garb) and curious paintings (replicas of street graffiti; a portrait of an Indian woman sporting a four-fingered ring that reads “boom”; a towering image of an Indian strongman) are sprinkled throughout the 3,500-square-foot locale.
Wicker-backed chairs and giant baskets recast as light fixtures contribute to the casual feel.
James Beard Award-winning chef and newly minted cookbook author Vikram Sunderam has expanded upon the rolls, kebabs, and snacks offered at the Bindaas in Cleveland Park (which is staying put, by the way). New menu items include: a fried chicken sandwich with beet-tomato chutney ($10); butternut squash uttapam ($9); and a pair of “roadside” curries featuring chicken ($14) or rotating vegetables ($12).
“It’s my 11th restaurant. I hope it will be the lucky one,” Bajaj jokes.
The anticipated hours of operation are from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday. The new Bindaas is tentatively scheduled to open to the public Monday, November 6.
When Amazon bought Whole Foods, analysts feared Jeff Bezos’s growth model — easy online shopping paired with an algorithm that dangles unnecessary items “frequently bought together” — could be a death knell for the grocery chain’s carefully crafted human touch. Warehouse jobs would go first, they said, followed …
It’s from the owner of Ladybird Grove and Mess Hall
This one’s a throwback: Golden Eagle Diner’s Club, the new restaurant from Ladybird Grove and Mess Hall owner Michael Lennox, is now open in the building that once housed H. Harper Station and now is home to ‘70s-esque taco place Muchacho.
It’s inspired by the restaurants of days gone by (read: the ‘50s and ‘60s) , with a clubby atmosphere and food Lennox described to Eater as “no-nonsense, throwback continental classics of yesteryear.”
That translates to Tavern steak au poivre and broiled oysters along with Corpse Reviver cocktails, according ...
Workhorse Brewing Company is heading to King of Prussia. The new brewery will open in the spring of 2018, complete with a tasting room and an event space, in a 62,000-square-foot facility at 250 King Manor Drive. It’s from Dan Hershberg of Philly Phaithful, with Nathan Olewine as brewmaster.
Olewine, who started his career at Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown, is coming from Devils Backbone in central Virginia. The brewer spent five years at Devils Backbone, which is now owned by Anheuser-Busch. Hershberg’s Philly Phaithful is a clothing company known for its playful, ...

The Trump administration has started putting the pieces in place to revoke an Obama-era rule that bans tip-pooling — essentially, a restaurant-industry practice not unlike socialism where servers’ tips get collected by the house, then redistributed however owners see fit (meaning to themselves, even). The system obviously invites …
Funds will go to support those affected by the devastating wildfires
Local restaurants and sommeliers are setting up fundraisers to support communities affected by the massive wildfires that ravaged Sonoma, Napa, and neighboring counties in Northern California earlier this month, wiping out neighborhoods and vineyards across wine country and killing 42 people.

Every time yet another steakhouse opens in downtown DC, we hear the same spiel: We’re not just another steakhouse. Our service really sets us apart from the competition. We use top-quality prime beef. Oh, and check out this raw bar! Rare Steak and Seafood, opening November 6, is no different. But when we recently toured […]
It’s easy to confuse the newly-opened District Winery in Navy Yard and the forthcoming City Winery in Ivy City. They’re both from New York. They’re both pioneering the “urban winery” trend in DC by importing grapes from the West Coast to make their wines. Also, you know, the name thing. Despite the similarities, DC’s two […]
