Join a different kind of conversation about food in our nation’s capital. Best Thing on the Menu (BTM) is the DC food blog where it’s fun to disagree! Adventures around culinary Washington lead to posts announcing the must-get items on menus. Those that don’t agree with BTM’s top pick can post their favorites in the comments section. BTM empowers DC diners to order with confidence. Take Kapnos for example:

At Top Chef Mike Isabella’s foray into Greek cuisine, we ended our evening with a little game called Duck Duck Dinner. The Best Thing on the Menu: Roasted Duck Phyllo Pie with Cress, Cherries and Pistachio Yogurt was so good, we called in a second order for dessert. The plate shuffling we caused our server by throwing an appetizer in with our dessert was as awkward as a duck on water-skis, but when it came to devouring a double dose of the BTM, we didn’t care. Tender shredded duck fills freshly-baked phyllo dough topped with tart cherries and tangy pistachio yogurt. Each order comes with two triangles, so order accordingly, or you’ll contribute to making doubling-up at dessert a true trend. Continue reading.

See if your favorite restaurant is on BTM.
