Barracks Row Taste of 8th


Editorial Review

Since last year's Taste of 8th, the yearly event that showcases Barracks Row's burgeoning restaurant scene, the neighborhood has entered the mainstream as a draw for District diners; call it the Ted's Bulletin effect. More than 15 of the thoroughfare's restaurants — including newcomers Ted's, Senart's Oyster & Chop House and the Chesapeake Room, along with such established favorites as Belga Cafe, Cafe 8 and the Ugly Mug — will serve tapas-style samples from 1 to 4 p.m. Tasting tickets are $5 each, or five for $20.
