‘Venison, Bourbon Steak’

Let me just start this by saying that if you haven’t tried Bourbon Steak’s fries yet, please do…but that’s a totally different story.
The restaurant, located in Georgetown’s Four Seasons, hasn’t stopped tweeting since it first logged on back in December 2009. @BourbonSteakDC currently has more than 2,100 followers and tweets about five times a day. The polite restaurant will always thank you on Twitter for coming in to dine, and recently it got be excited about an event I had somehow forgotten about.
The original Tweet is from Bourbon’s @ChefSobel, but I’m glad to know that restaurant and chef are on the same page — at least when it comes to pork. For those of you who don’t know, Cochon 555 is coming back to DC on the 13th. Five area chefs — Scott Drewno of The Source, Ashby Inn’s Tarver King, Jamie Leeds of Hank’s Oyster Bar, Volt’s Bryan Voltaggio, and Chef Sobel — will compete to see who can make the best dishes from an entire pig. Oh, and there’s wine.
I wonder what Sobel is cooking up. And will he tell us more in a Tweet?
Bourbon’s PR rep tells me that they use Twitter not only to share their daily dining specials and special events with followers, but also to comment on fun ideas at other restaurants and remind followers of “what issues are trending in DC at any given moment.” Not sure if pork dishes count as an “issue,” but either way…thanks and congratulations!
All – I did an interview series with the chefs who are competing in this year’s Cochon 555 in DC (www.hypervocal.com/samsgoodmeats). I’ll also be live tweeting @samsgoodmeats starting today (3/13) at 330pm. Follow me if you’re interested!
