Last night, the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington threw the 31st annual RAMMY AWARDS. BYT thoroughly enjoys these awards every year, mainly as a refresher course in what restaurants/bars/hang-outs we need to revisit (especially in the onslaught of new establishments happening this year-according to one of the speeches at the awards, in the first six months, already 50 new restaurants have opened in our fair district).

We have the full list of winners below but particular congratulations go out to some of BYT favorites that (very deservedly) won some of the big awards of the night: ROOM 11 for BEST MIXOLOGY PROGRAM (somewhat of an upset in a very strong category this year), ESTADIO for Best Upscale Casual dining, Bar Pilar for hottest bar scene, Blue Duck Tavern for Fine Dining, Fabio Trabbochi for CHEF of the Year, Nellie’s Sports Bar for neighborhood gatherine place, and of course-the great Ashok Bajaj, who won Restaurateur of the Year. With Rasika, Rasika West End, Bombay Club, 701, Bibiana, Ardeo/Bardeo and now Nopa Kitchen under his belt, him and his Knighsbridge group more than deserved it. PHOTOS OF CELEBRATION BELOW.
