This week has screamed vacation, DC is desolate. And rightly so, cause this humidity and heat is enough to make anyone crazy. Thus, the food news has been slow to surface this week. We’ve got a few things, though, so read on for all the news fit to eat in the District.
Chef/Partners Kaz Okochi and Richard Sandoval are pleased to announce Antonio Burrell as Chef de Cuisine of Masa 14, the new 100-seat Latin-Asian hotspot opening at 1825 14th Street, NW in September 2009, which will serve dinner and weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday. The all-small plates menu will incorporate Asian and Latin flavors, and will be priced from $6 to $14. I interviewed Burrell a while back, check it out here.
