UPDATED: Arlington Eateries Shut Out at RAMMY Awards

Despite Arlington’s burgeoning culinary scene, the local restaurants nominated for the 2010 RAMMY awards were shut out at tonight’s ceremony. The annual awards dinner, organized by the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington, was held at the Marriott Wardman Park in Northwest D.C.

The Arlington nominees who went home empty-handed were:

  • EatBar (Neighborhood Gathering Place of the Year)
  • Eventide (New Restaurant of the Year)
  • Liam LaCivita — The Liberty Tavern (Rising Culinary Star of the Year)
  • Josh Short — EatBar/Tallula/Neighborhood Restaurant Group (Pastry Chef of the Year)

Our Northern Virginia neighbors fared better at the ceremony, however.

2941 Restaurant of Falls Church won for Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year and its pastry chef, Anthony Chavez, won for Pastry Chef of the Year. Alexandria’s Vermilion Restaurant was named Upscale Casual Restaurant of the Year.

The winners in the remaining categories all hailed from the District.
