And the RAMMY Goes To… MVT Restaurants Win Big at 2023 RAMMY Awards!

Friday July 14, 2023

On Sunday, July 9, Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) hosted its annual awards ceremony to celebrate legacy and excellence in the region’s food industry.


Neighborhood staple RASA took home the award for “Favorite Fast Bites,” which was one of five categories open to public vote; and A Baked Joint (and Baked and Wired!) matriarch Teresa Valazquez was named “Pastry Chef or Baker of the Year.” In 2023 RAMW broadened its “Pastry Chef of the Year” award to include bakers and further ensure “the area’s many outstanding bakers and pastry chefs were recognized, and introduced.” Congratulations to both of our winners: you continue to shine light on the diverse and delicious food scene that’s all here in MVT!


Congratulations are also in order for Ciel Social Club, which was recently recognized as “Best Rooftop in DC” for the second year in a row by Modern Luxury DC. Give them a proper toast at their upcoming Barbie Drag Brunch happening on Sunday, July 23!
