More than 350 individuals attended last year’s event, and we’re excited to host an even bigger number this year. In addition to Entrée DC’s traditional focuse on restaurants, delis, bakeries, and catering businesses, this year’s event will also highlight some of DC’s fast casual restaurants, such as Takorean (Korean Taco Grill) and Capitol Hill Crab Cakes. And this year’s event will include two successful businesses from the local distillery industry. One distillery, Republic Restorative LLC will participate, alongside other businesses, on our ending panel entitled, “Market Trends in D.C. Food & Drink Industry in the Next Five Years.
