Restaurateur Ashok Bajaj will be honored with the 2017 Duke Zeibert Capital Achievement Award. The award recognizes an individual whose hard work and outstanding initiative has increased the profile and success of the metropolitan Washington foodservice and dining communities. Bajaj has owned and operated restaurants for over 25 years. He has opened numerous successful landmark restaurants, including The Oval Room and Rasika. Most recently, Bajaj merged Ardeo and Bardeo into one restaurant and bar, allowing for the opening of his Indian street-food restaurant—Bindaas! Bajaj’s restaurants have significantly fueled the growth of Penn Quarter’s development and status as a dining and tourism destination. (3309 Connecticut Ave, NW; 202.244.6550; bindaasdc.com)
