Food enthusiasts in the DMV area, just like everywhere else, often rely on advice from other people when selecting a restaurant to visit. And it is always a good idea to receive such advice from someone who takes “eating” seriously. Some food bloggers do a perfect job in that sense. Here are some of the best Washington, DC food bloggers in our opinion.
Rick Eats DC:
One of the most popular Washington, DC food bloggers, Rick Eats DC is run by Rick, who is originally from Minneapolis and grew up in a family of restaurateurs. Traveling with his wife and three kids, he goes anywhere to follow his passion for food.
In his blog, you can read his weekly analyses titled “The Best Things I Ate This Week,” a Best of DC section, which gives you ideas about where to find the best falafel, best matzo ball soup, best cheap eats, best burgers, or the best pizza in Washington, DC.
