Food News Friday

Previously known as "The Weekly Wrap Up" this weekly portion of the blog needed a catchier name. Here you will find a recap of all D.C. food news and upcoming events. Please feel free to submit any food news in the comments section.

  • Much to the delight of Washingtonians, Equinox reopened after being closed for five months due to a kitchen fire. The restaurant features a newly designed dining room, as well as new lunch and dinner menus.
  • Chefs joined Michelle Obama in kicking off the Chefs Move to Schools program, an initiative that aims to improve school lunches by offering healthier options created by chefs. For example, Spike Mendelsohn of Good Stuff Eatery teaches cooking classes at Kipp Academy, where students will also plant a garden to grow foods for future lunches.
  • Sala Thai in Petworth opens today. The grand opening will occur on June 15th from 6-9 p.m.
  • Tim Carman of Young and Hungry posts an in depth and exclusive interview with the owner of Inox of Tyson's Corner after it closed earlier this week. Read the interview here.
