The James Beard Awards are among the most coveted in the high-end dining world. We have a ton of semifinalists in DC and many of them are restaurants in Borderstan.
The Columbia Room (the private back bar of The Passenger) is competing for ‘Outstanding Bar Program’. Birch & Barley’s Tiffany MacIsaac is a nominee for ‘Outstanding Pastry Chef’ and the beer director of Neighborhood Restaurant Group (which owns Birch & Barley), Greg Engert, is a semi-finalist for ‘Outstanding Wine and Spirits Professional.’
