2013 AT&T Best of Washington party hosted by local magazine the Washingtonian

Celebrity chefs and the Best restaurants participated in this year’s Best of Washington party by Washingtonian magazine.

Washington, DC (July 22, 2013) – For more than 30 years, the Washingtonian magazine has invited readers to vote for the best people, places, and services in the area. Their readers rate everything from cocktails to Congress members, and Washingtonian editors weigh in with their picks of the best Washington has to offer.

At this years 2013 AT&T Best of Washington party, they invited all the winners, from Black’s Bar & Kitchen to The Jefferson Hotel’s Plume, to set up booths and serve up their finest offerings. This sold-out event brought guests, celebrities, restaurateurs, and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society supporters to the National Building Museum to sample, sip, and socialize.

The July 17th event featured more than 60 of Washingtonian’s 100 Very Best Restaurants including; Ardeo + Bardeo, Park Hyatt’s Blue Duck Tavern, Willard Hotel’s Café du Parc, Mandarin Oriental’s City Zen, Graffiato, W Hotel’s J&G Steakhouse, Lyon Hall, Ripple, Ritz Carlton’s Westend Bistro, and celebrity chefs like Bryan Voltaggio and Scott Drewno.

This year, all funds from the silent auction and a portion of ticket proceeds will once again go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The AT&T Best of Washington party is always the highlight of the summer season.
