Food Day - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas edition

Ho ho ho! Break out the egg nog, cut yourself a slice of fruitcake, and get ready to open up package after package of tube socks, it's the last Food Day before Christmas!

Here's what's going on in the world of food:

Because the Wii costs $500: Tom Sietsema's gift to us all is a great list of dishes around the city at or under $10. Some of the dishes include a slice of Vegetable Pie at Church Street Pizzeria in Vienna, and tacos at Taqueria Nacionale here in DC.

My two favorite things: Who could have thought that reading and drinking could make such a fine pair? The NYT evidently. They've got a short list of books on wine or about wine that would make a great Chirstmas gift, or a great gift for yourself.

Hey, why stop at one story about books?: The Boston Globe's food section highlights some of the best new cookbooks this year. Again, looking for a last minute gift? Why not get that special someone another Jamie Oliver cookbook?

Thanks for shining a light on this issue: If I wanted to eat in a cave, I would eat in a cave, but I eat in restaurants - so turn the f&*king lights on! The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a really interesting article/commentary on the lighting, or lack thereof in fancier restaurants these days.

So I'll leave you with this question my loyal reader(s):

What restaurants in the DC area do you feel has the best lighting? Which do you feel has the worst?
