Arlington Restaurants Nominated for RAMMY Awards

Inside David Guas' new Bayou Bakery in CourthouseA number of Arlington restaurants were named 2013 RAMMY Award nominees last night.

The annual awards gala is organized by the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW). Nominees were announced last night in 16 categories.

While Arlington was shut out in the “fine dining” and “upscale casual” categories, Arlington-based restaurants made up more than half the “Casual Restaurant of the Year” category.

Among the five casual restaurant nominees were Bayou Bakery (1515 N. Courthouse Road), Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza (3017 Clarendon Blvd) and Nando’s Peri-Peri (1301 S. Joyce Street). Bayou was the only purely Arlington restaurant; Pete’s and Nando’s both have other locations outside of Arlington.

The RAMMY Award winners will be announced at a gala event on Sunday, June 23.
