Chef 5 Bites: Ed Witt

Ed Witt, executive chef of Ashok Bajaj's 701 Restaurant, took over the kitchen at the Penn Quarter dining room last summer.

The Binghamton, New York native went to Maryland's Damascus High School and later the University of Maryland before heading to the Culinary Institute of America.

Before returning to the DC area, Witt cooked in the kitchens at Tracy Des Jardins' Rubicon and Jardinière in San Francisco, NYC's Daniel, Nicole's, River Café in Brooklyn, Il Buco and Varietal.

Witt reveals five of his favorite DC dishes:

1. Guanciale at Sonoma

2. Chicken, corn and curry dumpling at The Source

3. Bacon flight at Eola

4. King salmon kobujime at Sei

5. Turtle soup at Acadiana
