The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) will announce RAMMYS 2020 winners this year in a virtual format September 20. The announcement from a live event at the Walter E. Convention Center will be broadcast to the public via therammys.org.

Amid a pandemic, RAMMYS can bring joy and hope

Now more than ever, RAMW, its Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and panel of judges decided it was important to move forward with the RAMMY Awards to celebrate the local restaurant industry. They say the DMV foodservice community is an essential part of the local economic recovery.

According to an announcement from RAMW, “While the event honors finalists based on the 2019 year of dining, RAMW recognizes that 2020 started in a very different way with the challenges that the industry was forced to navigate, and notes that moving forward with this year’s program is important as a building block towards recovery.”

“Our industry, and all of us, need things to look forward to and to give us some semblance of joy and hope in our lives,” said Kathy E. Hollinger, president of chief executive of RAMW.
