If you aren't familiar with the RAMMY's, it is the annual place to see and be seen in the restaurant industry. It is 'technically' the RAMW's (Restaurant Assoc. of Metro Washington) Annual dinner celebrating their 'voted' picks of the best of the best restaurants, chefs, etc. in the DC Metro area. But it's really a who's who list of attendees and the chance for 'normal' restaurant diners to get a glimpse and rub elbows with the 'big' chefs and restaurateurs of the DC Metro area.
To see a list of nominees: visit the RAMW's website to get the pdf http://www.ramw.org/pdf/06nominee.pdf.
Not to brag too much, but my previous employers of Restaurant Eve, Maestro and Butterfield 9 were nominated for multiple awards, including 'Pastry Chef of the Year' (Butterfield 9) 'Chef of the Year' (Restaurant Eve),'Wine & Beverage Program of the Year' (Restaurant Eve) and Best 'Fine Dining Restaurant' (Maestro).
