Fishbowl DC: Remember that time when a DC restaurant chain claimed that Anthony Bourdain gave them a ringing endorsement at the Capitol Food Fight, and then he said he totally didn’t? The media reporters at Fishbowl rang up “baffled” Washington Examiner columnist Nikki Schwab, who reiterated that Ping Pong Dim Sum is “still certain he was in there and that he mentioned them.” Which is hilarious, considering that right before we published that article, we got an email from Ping Pong’s PR team saying that there was a “misunderstanding relating to this sighting,” begging us not to write anything on it. (They did not respond to our requests for elaboration.) We believe you are intelligent enough to draw your own conclusions.
