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.

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.
