Chef Jeff Black Is Dishing Up Generosity At Annual Chef’s Best Dinner & Auction

Chef Jeff Black will chair this year's
Chef's Best Dinner & Auction.
Jeff Black has established himself as a force in the Washington, DC, community through a lifetime of commitment to the restaurant industry. Chef Black and his wife Barbara opened their first restaurant, Addie’s, in Rockville, in 1992, and the two determined chefs have successfully expanded with four more establishments. Barbara and Jeff Black, with partner, Jon Linck, own and operate Addie's, Black Market Bistro, Black's Bar and Kitchen, Pearl Dive Oyster Palace, Black Jack and BlackSalt Fish Market & Restaurant, which captured the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington’s “Best New Restaurant of the Year” in 2006.

While each restaurant has its own distinct style, all share a common commitment to great food and quality service. Black Restaurant Group supports the sustainability of farms and waters, humane and healthful raising of animals and fish, and environmentally sound practices regarding energy, recycling and conservation. In addition to their sustainable practices, Black's Restaurant Group seeks to make a difference in the community by partnering with and supporting local charities through the Black's Family Foundation.

Each of the restaurants is routinely recognized by critics and guests alike as some of the top restaurants in the area ranking in Washingtonian magazine’s “100 Best.” And in 2012 Jeff and Barbara Black were recognized for their success as Restaurateurs of the Year from Washingtonian and from the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington.

We are incredibly grateful to have Chef Jeff Black serve as Celebrity Chef Chair for the 23rd Annual Chef’s Best Dinner & Auction presented by the NACDS Foundation. Chef Jeff Black and his restaurants having been delighting guests at Chef’s Best for years with tasty bites and extraordinary auction lots. In addition, through participating in Dining Out for Life® and hosting a number of special events in our honor, Jeff Black has donated more than $70,000 to support our mission.

Chef Black has said of Food & Friends: "I am confident that you will never find a more committed, passionate and loving group of people than Food & Friends. The efforts of their volunteers and staff are immeasurable, and they give more to our local community in a day than most do in a year." We are proud and honored, in Food & Friends' 25th year, to have Chef Jeff Black serving as our Chef's Best Dinner & Auction Celebrity Chef Chair.
