The RAMMYS are the DC culinary world's equivalent of the Oscar, handed out by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington.
The store, restaurant and bar is up for a "Wine Program of the Year" RAMMY. It is competing against:
- 2941 Restaurant
- Restaurant Eve
The category is described as:
"The establishment is distinguished by the quality, diversity, clarity and value of its wine program. The nominee’s wine program best suits the cuisine and style of the restaurant while enhancing the dining experience. Wine bars are eligible for this category and will be judged based on the diversity and quality of their offerings. The nominee continues to break new ground in education of its staff. The nominee must have been in operation for a minimum of one year as of December 1, 2013."
The selection process for the finalists, and ultimately the winners,
involves two esteemed groups, the voting public and a panel of volunteer
judges, consisting of food and dining journalists, educators and foodservice
industry professionals who remain anonymous to the public as well as each other.
Awards will be handed out June 22.
