For the past 43 years, Washingtonian has taken the pulse of the local restaurant scene by asking you, the reader, to play food critic.
Obviously, this hasn’t been an ordinary year—so we’re taking a slightly different approach for our Readers’ Favorite Restaurants survey.
Yes, we still want to hear about who you think slings the best pizza or burger or Korean feast. But this is also the time to shine a spotlight on your most beloved neighborhood spots. To call out the folks who have met the challenges of this pandemic by pivoting creatively, adapting brilliantly, or even opening a new restaurant. And to reflect on all the places that have made our dining scene as great as it is.
We know you have opinions! So please weigh in here. Answers will be revealed in our December issue, and you’ll automatically be entered into a drawing for a $150 gift card to a restaurant of your choice.
