If Walls Could Talk / 10.02.2012

I'm missing tonight's slow braised pork shank, but a deal's a deal (if you're reading this on Friday, I wrote this Thursday night and ordered take out from Pho 14 ... yum). Winner of the inaugural "If Walls Could Talk" reader poll is Pearl Dive Oyster Palace (@PearlDiveDC), taking 33% of the vote. Cleveland Park's representative, Dino (@dinodc), took second place with 27% of the vote, staying alive for the second poll (starting Monday). It was a tense and hard-fought battle between these two, but ultimately, Pearl Dive pulled out the victory.
