Join us Friday, March 29 at 11 AM to chat with Ann Limpert. Have a question about the cookbooks and food-related memoirs that are coming out in the next few months? The latest crop of James Beard award nominees? Or maybe you just need a dinner recommendation. Leave a question now for Ann, and she’ll get to as many as she can Friday morning.

Ann: Good morning, chatters (in my best Dame Edna voice)! Hope you’re looking forward to a warm weekend as much as I am. This week I had one of my first tastes of spring, in the form of morels at the glittery and palatial Punjab Grill in Penn Quarter (seriously, the private dining room is like a subcontinental Hall of Mirrors). They were draped in a gently spiced gravy and paired with ultra-meaty achari mushrooms, and boy were they good. Stay tuned for more thoughts on the place, but for now I’ll also throw in a plug for a sleeper hit: The side of Brussels sprouts with shaved coconuts and mustard seeds. They tasted more steamed than roasted or fried, and were totally refreshing. And after this Brussels-sprouts-mad year—who isn’t sick of them—that’s saying something. 

Also, I know you’ve got plenty of dining opinions (Who slings the best burger? What’s the best local brewery? Which under-the-radar restaurants do you wish got more recognition?). Why not take a minute and share them on our Best of Washington reader survey? You’ll be entered to win a pair of tickets to June’s Best of Washington party, which I promise will be super-fun (and very delicious).  It closes on Monday, so last chance. 

Onto your questions! Ask them in the form below; the chat transcript shows up underneath.
