MORE: Cocktail Reception for Art & Soul’s New Chef

Smith who lost more than 100 pounds is changing up his menu reflect living well.  To cut the fat but keep the flavor he brought in new Executive Chef Wes Morton (formerly of Againn) who hails from Louisiana. To toast the new lighter taste… foodies and even Food Network stars celebrated with small bites and southern cocktails on Art & Soul’s popular patio. Watch WUSA9 Thursday morning for more from the party!

What we're diggin at DC Restaurant Week

DC’s Restaurant Week is right around the corner so what are you in the mood for?!? Check out Tricia Barba’s write up for WeLoveDC.com. She taps into the hungry minds of local media to see where they’ll be cashin’ in on great 3 course cuisines. My top picks... Chef Geoff’s, WILDFIRE, Bistro Bis and Bourbon Steak. I really wanna try Blacksalt– I hear their seafood is to die for.

There are more than 200 places participating this month.. check out the DC Restaurant Week list of deals here.  Don’t worry friends who never leave VA.. there are restaurants in Virginia and Maryland taking part with specials too.
