GMU economist and amateur food critic Tyler Cowen has posted the latest edition of his eminently useful guide to ethnic cuisine in the D.C. area. His page is the best site to visit when you’re looking for a great new place to try — and if it doesn’t work out for you, Tyler’s not taking the blame:
Remember, if you donít like these, you probably didnít follow my advice for what to order. Or you are to blame in some other manner, I donít know which one, there are many possibilities. The most likely are that you simply donít have very good taste, or perhaps you are not very bright. Too bad.
The best news coming out of this update is that he’s finally found a Mexican restaurant he’s willing to recommend. Having grown up in Houston, the Mexican food in this city has been the biggest culinary disappointment for me. The restaurant is called El Tapatio. Too bad it’s in Maryland.
