The Blair Mansion Restaurant is one of the few local dining establishments remaining from the 1950s.

The face of Washington's food culture is constantly changing, but how has it evolved? Rebecca Sheir sits down for lunch at Blair Mansion, a Silver Spring restaurant that's been feeding Washingtonians for more than half a century. Joining her to chat about D.C.'s food history is Sheilah Kaufman, of the Culinary Historians of Washington, D.C., and Robert Zeender, who's been running Blair Mansion for more than 50 years.
