Bravo Loves DC

by MADELEINE STARKEY · June 29, 2010

First Top Chef D.C. then Real Housewives of D.C. I think it's safe to say Bravo is sweating D.C.  Hard.

And to prove its devotion to us, Bravo has put together a whole feature on its website highlighting its recommendations for DC restaurants, bars and shops.

The restaurant recommendations are on point, but seem to focus only on big name chefs:

Michel Richard is behind both Citronelle and Central

Frank A. Ruta, former White House executive sous chef, helms Paelena

Jose Andres is responsible for Zaytinya.

The recommendations of Policy and The Gibson (above) are also on point, and are the most authentic recommendations across all the lists.

What's not on point, however, are their shopping recommendations:

Forever 21

Nine West

Guess

Aeropostale

Louis Vuitton

Barring LV, any of these stores are accessible across the States.  Couldn't you come up with something a little more D.C. specific, Bravo?

Don't get me started on the bar/club recommendations.  They, along with the shopping recommendations, Andy Cohen, are my non-mazel of the week.
