On this weeks edition of Industry Night with Foodie and the Beast we take a look at the past several years, during which Greater Washington has joined the exclusive “club” among the world’s most revered dining destinations. From Bon Appetit to Michelin, DC area restaurants are acknowledged as “must dine there!”

Joining us on today’s show are three of the many who have helped to elevate DC’s dining rep to global status: Kathy Hollinger, president and CEO of the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW); Christianne Ricchi, chef/owner of DC’s legendary i Ricchi, and Grace Shea, a member of the family team that owns and operates the ultra-successful Lebanese Taverna restaurants. They’re talking the growth and blossoming of the regional dining out industry; challenges and opportunities facing its continued expansion and evolution and, of course, the RAMMYs, RAMW’s annual “Oscars” gala celebrating the best of the best for 2019.
