Food Day

Happy food day all. There's a lot going on in the culinary universe, so I'll just hit the high points:

Equinox Expansion: After contemplating a move to a larger location, Todd and Ellen Gray of Equinox have decided to simply expand their current kitchen onto their loading dock according to the Washington Post. This is the first in many steps to update the restaurant; others will include private dining areas and a fireplace.

Restaurants circle the wagons for holiday dining: A number of restaurants in the area have recently announced a special menu for the upcoming fall and holiday seasons. Some of the highlights amongst these are Chef Brendan Cox's $48 per person pre fixe holiday menu at Circle Bistro that includes such dishes as Sage Crusted Pork Loin with Cider Jus, and Roulade of Free Range Turkey with Cranberry Compote, and Legal Seafood's thanksgiving menu that replaces turkey with a baked stuffed lobster!

Two from the Express: The Washington Post Express has two really interesting food stories today: one about the rise in personal chefs for busy (and wealthy) professionals, and one about Taco Bell making a run for the border and opening up their first shop in Mexico for the first time in 15 years. Ironically enough, Taco Bell is selling french fries in order to seem more American.
