Thousands of local foodies came out for the 2019 Washingtonian Taste of Georgetown, presented by INFINITI on Sunday, September 22. Attendees at the popular festival enjoyed a variety of dishes from more than 20 of the neighborhood’s best restaurants and food vendors. While strolling K Street, they visited the booths of several retailers and sipped beers in the beer garden courtesy of The Berliner and Pacifico, wine from 90+ Cellars, and nonalcoholic beverages by PepsiCo.
Festival-goers also got the chance to experience INFINITI’s all new 2019 QX50, QX60, and QX80 models and visit the Kids Corner for face-painting, coloring, and other activities. Throughout the day, food lovers voted for their favorite restaurants. Washingtonian’s Anna Spiegel awarded the best bites of the day. Congratulations to Ristorante Piccolo for winning People’s Choice Best in Show and to 1789 Restaurant for winning Critics’ Choice in Best Show. Other honors went to Ristorante Piccolo for Sweetest Sweet, Reren Lamen and Bar for Carnivore’s Champion Dish, Clyde’s of Georgetown for Best Catch of the Sea, and Taim for Vegetarian’s Dream Dish.
