Food News Friday

The reviews are in for D.C. Cupcake, the TLC reality show about Georgetown Cupcake, and the reviews aren't good. According to Tim Carman of Washington City Paper, he missed the premier on Friday, July 16th because he was "busy doing more important things...Like testing my muscle reflexes with a dull pick-ax." Although D.C. Cupcake promos did not encourage the brutally honest Carman to tune in, those who did voiced similar thoughts. The full article can be found at Young and Hungry, the blog for Washington City Paper.

After several delays, We, the Pizza, the latest restaurant venture from Spike Mendelsohn, will open today. Originally scheduled to open Monday, July 12th and then Monday, July 19th, we, the public will finally be able to taste the long awaited pies.

Apparently Mussel Bar of Bethesda also experienced some false openings. Supposedly opening on July 21st, the restaurant opened a day late due to staff training.

The food trucks just keep rolling into town. This week, three more food trucks announced their arrival.
  1. Eat Wonky: Will serve Poutine, a Canadian dish made out of french fries, gravy and cheese curds. Look for Eat Wonky in mid-August.
  2. CapMac: Will serve pasta, which will include mac n' cheese (obviously).
  3. Fry Captain: Will serve french fries and milkshakes. Hopefully the servers will be wearing poodle skirts and leather jackets because I'm feeling a 1950s flash back coming on. Look for Fry Captain during the first week of August.
Need help keeping track of all the DC food trucks? Look no further than Food Truck Fiesta, a new website that monitors the location of every food truck.
