Throughout March and April we'll be highlighting just a few of the amazing restaurants dedicated to supporting the children and adults in their neighborhood battling HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses.
First on our Restaurant Roll Call list: Beacon Bar & Grill!
Dining Out for Life since 2006, and has donated nearly $7,000 to Food & Friends.
They have a world-class Sunday Champagne Brunch and a rooftop perfect for a Thursday in April! Chef Steven Hunter introduced a new menu in 2011 that reflects a re-interpretation of American classic comfort foods. We chatted with them about Food & Friends and Dining Out for Life:
WHY DO YOU SUPPORT FOOD & FRIENDS?
Because Food & Friends is the only organization in the Washington Metropolitan Community that is providing this kind of service to those in our community with the greatest need, and they have been doing this for such a long time.
WHY DO YOU PARTICIPATE IN DINING OUT FOR LIFE?
It is a great way to share ones commitment to the community and the easiest way to be part of a program that reaches so many people.
WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT YOUR RESTAURANT?
We strive to create a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere where our patrons enjoy great food, service, quality and value. We are neighborhood restaurant that wants to be engaged in supporting community organizations as a means of giving back to the community that also supports us. Our menu changes seasonally and Chef Steven Hunter is dedicated to regionally sustainable seasonal products and produce to present a unique dining experience.
