The Weekender: The RAMMYS Edition
Today’s Weekender is brought to you by The RAMMY Awards. In honor of the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) honors, we’re dedicating this to all things delicious in the DMV.
Not Just Whiskey | Jack Rose
Not only is it the city’s top whiskey bar, but Jack Rose has a new chef and a solid new southern menu. Start your night on the first floor dining saloon and your choice of 2,000+ bourbons. Then end your night with tiki on the roof, or in the basement that serves as a speakeasy of sorts called Dram & Grain in the basement.
Global Street Food | Compass Rose
Compass Rose is a cozy and enchanting row home restaurant centered around international street foods. A plus, it’s decorated like a patio with moss growing on the brick walls, so even if the weather isn’t great you still have the vibe of outdoor dining! The restaurant is no reservations, so make sure you get there early.
Taste it All | Taste of Wheaton
Why not get out of the city for the day? Downtown Wheaton hosts its annual Taste of Wheaton on Sunday. A food festival offering samples from local restaurants, cooking demonstrations, a craft beer garden, and live musical performances – it’s fun for the whole family.
Who Will Win? | RAMMYS
The RAMMYS are a legend in their own right and offer an unparalleled evening of food, drink and entertainment. The RAMMYS are the leading event for the DC Area hospitality community and this is the night to show your support.
