For much of its history, Washington was considered something of a culinary backwater: a city of cafeterias and generic restaurants. But that began to change in the late 1960s. Our series on Washington’s culinary history continues as we explore how an influx of immigrants and the arrival of the District’s first celebrity chef began to change the city’s culinary DNA.
