About the Restaurant Guide
WETA's Signature Dish discovers and reveals the standout dishes at a wide array of the Washington, D.C. region’s best restaurants, from the latest dining hot spots to strip-mall eateries serving up authentic global cuisines. Host Seth Tillman takes viewers on a culinary journey around the D.C. area, one “must-have” dish at a time.
Each episode of Signature Dish visits three restaurants, where viewers will meet the proprietor/chef and learn about their signature dish. It might be unique to the restaurant, or perhaps it’s the chef’s new twist on a classic recipe? Whether it's the distinctive fish head curry at Malaysia Kopitiam in Centreville, VA, or Wagyu beef barbeque at 2Fifty, tucked away in Riverdale Park, MD, these mouth-watering menu items provide a flavorful view into the DMV’s vibrant restaurant landscape.
The Signature Dish Restaurant Guide website provides additional information about each signature dish, including restaurant locations, links to learn more, reviews, and video clips from each episode, all sorted by cuisine type and plotted on an interactive map of the local area.
Signature Dish is hosted by Seth Tillman, a producer at WETA, who previously worked on two local restaurant shows and several documentaries about the history of the DC region. Seth combines a keen interest in the people who help make our local communities thrive, with a broad knowledge of the local dining scene and a gourmand's appreciation for the area's diverse culinary offerings.
