Ridehailing companies say they are helping cities combat congestion, but as transit ridership declines and traffic gets worse, we take a closer look at their role in Washington's gridlock.
With new Bon Appetit rankings and Michelin stars on the way, Washington, D.C. is wasting no time climbing the culinary ladder. Neighborhoods in rapidly gentrifying parts of the city are also now home to increasingly expensive culinary experiences. Prix fixe menus, or tasting menus, give diners the opportunity to eat specially-curated courses at a fixed price. While the experience can be one of the best ways to explore a restaurant’s offerings, it comes at a cost – often in the hundreds of dollars. Are prix fixe menus worth the high price tag? Kojo explores this facet of fine dining, and what its rise says about modern D.C., with a local food editor and an attention-grabbing chef.
