This month is the one year anniversary of Dishes to Die For. To mark the occasion, I have compiled an overview of the DC-area restaurants where I have had my best meals in the past year. I've organized them by category, and indicated the specific dishes to die for in parentheses. You can read the original posts by clicking on the name of the restaurant.
