Food Day: It's going to be quick edition

Brevity is the word of the day, here's what's going on in the world of food:

When a taste is more than just a taste: WaPo food critic Tom Sietsema puts forth his arguement why tasting menus are simply too much food that takes up too much time.

But when are we getting ours?!?: The NYT food section has an article about the flood of frozen yogurt joints throughout NYC as the trend from California starts to make its way east.

So far there's no Pinkberry or Red Mango (the two leaders of the movement) in DC, or as far as I know, slated for DC. The closest you could probably come is getting the yogurt at Sweetgreen in Georgetown, which is very good (expect a full first look at Sweetgreen to come).

Life outside of the city: Another article from the NYT, critic Frank Bruni is venturing outside of the city to check out his top ten new restaurants in the country. The first restaurant he visited? Our very own Central.

Falls Church to get real pizza place: According to Don Rockwell (as posted on his website), Edan Macquaid, formerly of 2 Amy's, along with the owners of 2941, plan on opening up a pizzeria in downtown Falls Church, VA. Details are still hard to come by, but Rockwell believes that this, "has the potential to be one of the most exciting restaurants to open in 2008."

Hank's to house Oyster Festival: On Sunday, March 30th, Hank's Oyster Bar near Dupont Circle will house its first annual Hank's Oyster Fest. For $65 you'll be able to drink such beers as Allagash White, Allagash Dubbel, and Victory Prima Pilsner, while eating oysters from both coasts.

Tickets can be secured by contacting Hank's at 202.462.4265 or visit their website.

Let me know if I missed anything out there, or if there's a story you'd like to add.

Have a great day folks!
