Restaurant professionals and their allies gathered yesterday for the 41st Annual RAMMY Awards as the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) announced winners and a range of categories celebrating excellence in the industry, ranging from individual professional honors to accolades celebrating culinary concepts and service.

This year’s category changes included a move from Pastry Chef of the Year to Pastry Chef or Baker of the Year, ensuring the area’s many outstanding bakers and pastry chefs were recognized, and the introduction of Best Bar as a publicly voted category, recognizing the magnitude of nightlife establishments in the region.

Similar to past years, publicly voted categories were open to any eligible restaurant or food service operation in the region, regardless of RAMW membership. For the very first time, both the finalists and winners for the five publicly voted categories were chosen by the public.
