Over the past few months, we’ve seen D.C. area restaurants sort through a new series of ethical questions about what it means to do business in an intensely political atmosphere.

Meanwhile, Comet Ping Pong, a pizza joint in Chevy Chase, had to cope with online conspiracy theories made all too real when an armed man showed up during lunch service. With the inauguration just a few days away, we talk with a journalist and a restaurateur about how some of our favorite eateries are taking a stand or attempting to stay out of the fray.
