G. Garvin visits the nation's capital and starts his culinary adventure at Sixth Engine, a firehouse turned restaurant, where they merge the tastes of the north and south in a Grilled Shrimp and Black-Eyed Pea dish and feed some hungry local firefighters. Then it's a stop at Birch and Barley where a husband and wife team is bringing innovative flavors to the city with their Honey Glazed Duck and an artisanal French toast dessert that G. helps to make. G.'s last stop is Boundary Road, an American bistro cooking up unique meals like Brick Chicken and collard greens.
