Mark, I don't see the winners listed on the website. Who won for Best New Restaurant?

Food is a convenient way for ordinary people to experience extraordinary pleasure, to live it up a bit.

Matchbox won best new restaurant!

Before anyone chimes in and screams FOUL!, Matchbox must be considered a hilariously great choice that thumbs its nose at convention and authority.

And congratulations to vandyhoo's brother, Graig Glufling, chef at Matchbox.

FOUL!

I'll post the list because I think people are interested in it. That said, I don't know a single restaurant professional who thinks these "awards" are anything more than a joke, a farce, a travesty, and a means to obtain a bit of free PR.

What does it even mean, "of the year?"

Here they are,

Rocks.

or isn't this an opportunity for the DC restaurant community to get together, have a few drinks, talk some shop, recognize some of the industry leaders in the area, and draw attention to the fine area independent restaurants as opposed to the big national chains... :biggrin:
