The Food Factor
Restaurants have become the new creator of neighborhoods. Folks flock to Barracks Row for Rose's Luxury. To Bloomingdale for Red Hen. To Georgetown for Fiola Mare. And dozens of new joints have brought life to 14th Street and Shaw. Why is this, and what's next? That's why we're holding our fourth annual Bisnow DC Restaurant Development Summit at the Hamilton on Monday, Sept. 29 starting at 3pm.
Will mixologists be the next allure? DC Brau CEO Brandon Skall (right, snapped with co-founder Jeff Hancock and Patton Boggs' Vinoda Basnyake) is among our speakers. There hadn't been an operating brewery in DC since the '50s until Brandon and Jeff started DC Brau on Bladensburg Road NE in 2009, aiming to give the city a high-end, local brew. Monday's event features Brandon and panelists like Cava Mezze Grill founder Brett Schulman and Busboys & Poets founder Andy Shallal, as well as superbrokers Dave Dochter of Cushman & Wakefield and Miller Walker's Bill Miller. One of our signature Schmoozaramas follows the event. Sign up now!
