I think the most pleasant surprise has been the concentrated excellence of Union Market. I'd held my breath for something very cool to happen there, and it's surpassed my expectations, rounding up an all-star squad of culinary talent from around the region. Sign me up for a permanent bar stool at Buffalo & Bergen or Rappahannock Oysters any day.
