Celebrate restaurant week at your desk with our food finds from around the Web.
By Stephie Hass
It’s restaurant week in Washington and to celebrate, we’ve rounded up some food blogs you can devour right at your desk. Brooks Brothers is offering a series of blogs featuring seven key recipes that every man should know, all of which are surprisingly simple. In addition to a gorgeous online magazine, Whole Foods has a new Tumblr for creative foodies and gardeners. Bon Appetit spotlights a blog featuring lines of poetry alongside photos of doughnuts and, sadly, eBay announced that it will no longer sell magic potions.
Finally, be sure to check out our food features celebrating the 100th birthday of Julia Child this week and RAMMY-winning pastry chef Fabrice Bendano of Adour as he prepares two tempting desserts on camera.

As you try new meals and restaurants this week, keep Instagram close by. The photo app, popular for its distinctive filtered shots of cupcakes and lunches, just launched a mapping feature that allows users to tag their photos to a specific location. Watch the video below to see how it works.
