Five Bites on Friday

This week's Five Bites come from Kate Marshall of Culture Me, DC, which covers everything from ticket giveaways to festivals to restaurant openings.

1. Hamachi with pickled papaya, red onion, shiso and citrus soy at Zengo

2. Fontina risotto cakes at Vermilion

3. Skordalia dip (potatoes and garlic) with pita bread at Zorba's

4. The Q Special pizza at Matchbox

5. Cumin crusted sea scallops with sweet and spicy slaw at Georgia Brown's

Lots of new restaurants are popping up (Oyamel, Central, Il Mulino), with many more expected to open this spring, so keep the Five Bites coming! This is your opportunity to tell Metrocurean readers which dishes you're enjoying around town. Send your list and whether you'd like your name and a picture included to metrocurean@gmail.com.

Matchbox has awesome pizza. If you haven't been there you should definitely try it soon.

Good call Kate.

Yeah, their pizza is good, but their service is some of the worst in the city. Slow and error-prone. I'd hoped it would get better with the expansion, but it didn't.
