Cool new restaurant celebrates dishes of old

A prominent chef here in D.C., Jose' Andres, recently opened -on July 4!- the America Eats Tavern, a collaboration with The National Archives and the ThinkFood group that highlights traditional and/or forgotten classic American dishes. Check out the menu. This is really a cool idea, and I love that accompanying each dish on the menu is a bit of history, its date and restaurant of origin.
