Do You Know How to Read a Restaurant Menu?

By  | 

The Washingtonian’s recent article How to Read a Menu Like a Food Critic really caught my eye (h/t Dan). One of the things I love most in a new city is to try new restaurants, but it’s always a challenge to know what to get when I’m in unfamiliar territory. I usually ask the server what the chef is most excited about that night, but taste is subjective and that doesn’t always work.

So I love the approach that food critic Todd Kilman takes in helping us read restaurant menus.

He takes a local menu and highlights key things to look for and the “menu within a menu” that signals what the restaurant might do best.
