Food and Dining on Public Television, and Neighborhood Eats

I recently saw three great documentaries on public television - "The Meaning of Food," "A Hot Dog Program" and "Hamburger America," which are about eating at various spots across the country and the related lore and history, as well as the way food plays a central role in our cultural, familial and everyday lives. If you are not able to find the shows on tv, you can rent the dvd's. I also recently came across a program regarding eating and drinking spots in the DC area, and it is quite well done. Check your local programming for air times, or you can view the entire program online via the link below. Venues include DC's Ben's Chili Bowl and Busboys and Poets, Rockville's Cuban Corner and Urban BBQ, Vienna's Sunflower Vegetarian, late night at Pizza Mart in Adams Morgan, Alexandria's The Evening Star Cafe, and Arlington's Lost Dog Cafe - it is really cute.
