During a live chat, Meier shared her favorite Washington, DC restaurants and provided answers to reader questions about topics such as vegan brunch and whether fish feel pain. Meier also gave details about the COK co-sponsored event DC Meat-Free Week, which is scheduled to take place the week of February 6. Meier says, “This year is going to be incredibly fun!
