“As you know, food has the ability to connect us,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser as she kicked off The 33rd Annual RAMMY Awards Gala at Walter E. Washington Convention Center and that was right where the evening was heading – connecting through food. Cue the lights, cue the music and cue the food, it’s RAMMY time once again, celebrating the culinary achievements of the DC area with the Restaurant Association of Metro Washington.

If they do ever want to rename the gala we suggest ‘black tie and bibs.’ It is one of the tastiest, most finger-lickin’ evenings in the city and in many regards, it’s hard to imagine how anyone else gets a hot meal on this night when so many of Washington’s most talented chefs, bakers, brewers and bartenders are all gathered together under one roof.
