When: Wednesday, June 6, 2018 @ 6-10PM

Hot Spot: Penn Quarter & 14th Street, Washington, DC

Deets: Leave your wallet at home and dine in 30 top DC restaurants in one night. We shut down some of DC’s best restaurants for you to enjoy the chef’s favorite dishes and drinks. Eat and drink at your starting restaurant and choose your next stop. It’s up to you.

José Andrés is bringing back D.C.’s favorite culinary tour, Dine-N-Dash. Dine-N-Dash is hosted by World Central Kitchen, an NGO of chefs creating smart solutions to hunger and poverty across the globe, which was founded by Andres in 2010. José will be joined once again by celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern, and others to be announced, for this year’s event, taking place on June 6th. 

“My friends and I could not be more excited to host Dine-N-Dash this year,” Andres said. “It is my favorite thing: chefs cooking in their beautiful restaurants, introducing people to new foods, and all to benefit our vision of using food to empower communities around the world.” 

Entering its sixth year, Dine-N-Dash has raised $1.4 million to date in support of World Central Kitchen, which made headlines last year after feeding over 3.2 million victims of Hurricane Maria with #ChefsForPuertoRico. In addition to their chef-centered relief efforts, World Central Kitchen uses food as an agent of change in the areas of health, education, jobs, and social enterprise. 

This year’s Dine-N-Dash will take place from 6pm-10pm and will include over 30 restaurants in the dineworthy Penn Quarter and 14th Street neighborhoods. Guests will spend the evening “dashing” from restaurant to restaurant, sampling chefs’ favorite dishes and drinks. 

Both GA and VIP tickets will be available for sale beginning March 1st. VIP tickets include the same benefits of GA tickets plus a VIP only pre-party from 5:30pm - 7pm, hosted by Andrés, exclusive VIP-only restaurants, and access to a VIP post party!

All proceeds benefit World Central Kitchen.
