How Food Shapes a City
“Food is national security. Food is craft. Food is everything, when you think about it.”
D.C. Chef José Andrés
Since its founding, Washington’s markets and restaurants have shaped the city’s landscape. Businesses preparing, serving, and selling food have defined neighborhoods, launched the careers of immigrants, and fed an ever-changing, always-hungry citizenry. Spend the morning walking through D.C.’s Penn Quarter and Chinatown neighborhoods and see
- the former site of D.C.’s most extraordinary public market;
- where Washingtonians got their first taste of tapas;
- the Indian restaurant that shot D.C.’s food scene to award-winning heights;
- how a local food non-profit collaborated with the D.C. Public Library
Note: The walking tour does not include stops to sample or purchase food.
