Top area restaurants are slated to participate in the 12th Annual Taste of Del Ray. The event, named one of Virginia Living Magazine's top food festivals in the state, will shift to a weekend-long format from Friday, June 4 to Sunday, June 6.
Throughout the weekend, each participating restaurant will offer select “tastes” on their individual menus for just $5 each. Restaurants are also encouraged to offer cocktail pairings to complement their dishes. Order a bunch of Tastes to go, or enjoy them as an appetizer or part of your meal! Please note: Tastes are available at individual restaurants for purchase; we plan to return to our traditional event next year!
Online registration for the event is just $5, gives you access to an online ballot to cast your vote for the coveted People’s Choice Award. Both the ballot and menu will be sent to the email address registered via Eventbrite. Proceeds from the event will help fund future Del Ray Business Association events. Click here to register!
NOTE: This year, all “tastes“ need to be purchased directly from participating restaurants. Links are provided to each of their individual websites; they will be available on their menus from Friday, June 4 to Sunday, June 6. All food entries are specially priced at $5.
