Finding a recipe for recovery: What does the future of dining look like?

Dining out is radically different because of the coronavirus, and the “new normal” will impact how D.C.-area chefs work and how restaurants do business.

For WTOP’s “Finding a recipe for recovery” series, some of the D.C.-area’s prominent chefs shared their thoughts on the future of dining.
