Five Bites On Friday

Today's bites are from Rebecca McLean, a recently converted vegetarian who manages special events and recruiting for a law firm. She also teaches spinning classes to burn off all those calories.

1. Roasted root vegetable gratin with crispy risotto croquettes at Vegetate

2. Crispy potato skins (comes with a side of creamy bacon dip) at Bobby Van's Grill

3. House-smoked tofu shepherd's pie with a bucket of chips at CommonWealth

4. Tofu lettuce wraps at Sticky Rice

5. Deluxe wrap (vegetarians can hold the chicken) with avocado vinaigrette at Chix

Five Bites is a place for Metrocurean readers — and now DC's top chefs — to share all the delicious things they've been eating and drinking. E-mail five of your favorites and whether you'd like your name and a picture included to metrocurean AT gmail DOT com.

Stay tuned at noon for Five Bites from Art and Soul chef Ryan Morgan.
