Bacon Dinner in DC Next Week

Next week, the DC Bacon Nation can finally stop mourning the closure of David Greggory, a restaurant that once served as the de facto clubhouse for bacon lovers in the Nation's Capital. Rejoice and be glad, for The Landmark Restaurant at The Melrose Hotel is bringin' bacon back in the form of a dinner featuring bacon from The Grateful Palate and wines from Teusner Winery (Barossa Valley, Australia). And as usual, Chef Greggory Hill will be in the driver's seat.

If you were a diehard fan of the Bacon Aphrodisiac Dinners, or even if you are a bacon dinner virgin, here's your chance to experience one of these fun-filled events. If you want to play, be sure to call in advance for reservations - they are required.
