Last January, the Washington Post’s Going Out Guide set out on an expedition to name Washington DC’s essential dishes, using its reader submissions as a compass. Building on the positive feedback of the list, the Post announced it was taking a meat-free turn and asked readers to submit their favorite veggie eats in DC. What turned up was not the usual mass of salads and veggie burgers, but instead a colorful variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes including whiskey-infused seitan wings from Smoke and Barrel, Cupcake Wars first-place carrot cupcakes from Sweet Lobby, Pete’s Apizza’s crispy eggplant pizza, and Elizabeth’s Gone Raw’s spicy kale chips.
