José Andrés' Dine-N-Dash with Eric Ripert and Erik Bruner-Yang

by Raisa Aziz DineDashBuns

With just a few more weeks until Dine-N-Dash, Edible DC got a sneak peek of four restaurants on the lineup this year. Dine-N-Dash is the annual fundraiser for World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit founded by Chef José Andrés focused on smart solutions to hunger and poverty.

Your ticket buys you food and drink at almost 30 restaurants in Penn Quarter and the 14th Street Corridor between 6-10pm on June 15th. It’s probably best to go in with somewhat of a strategy - there’s a lot to eat and drink so choose a starting restaurant and map out a route from there. Here are some highlights from our preview. It was all delicious.

Oyamel: Don’t miss the shredded pork taco and the Oyamel, the restaurant’s signature margarita with Milagro blanco, Combier L’Original, fresh lime juice and ‘salt air’


DGBG (with VIP ticket): The springiest Spring Toast (fava, piquillo pepper, pistachio, ricotta, sweet riesling) paired with a glass of chilled rose


Ghibellina: A crowd pleaser with ramp arancini, beef brisket sliders and asparagus tarts.The rye cocktail was easily a favorite. Make sure this one gets on your list.


Masa 14: a 14th Street establishment whipping out Asian fusion food in style. Snack on edamame, shrimp appetizers and pork buns on the rooftop until you figure out your next move.
