With strong partner, team, Chef Cathal Armstrong’s Kaliwa could be headed to winner’s circle
This year is off to a good start for Meshelle and Chef Cathal Armstrong at Kaliwa. The Pan-Asian restaurant was chosen by the prestigious Michelin Guide as a Bib Gourmand restaurant for 2019. In April, the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington announced Kaliwa as a finalist for the 2019 RAMMY Award for New Restaurant of the Year. It’s a deserving tribute to what has been happening at the restaurant, which is located at the District Wharf. Kaliwa, which offers three types of Asian cuisine—Thai, Filipino, and Korean—has been the subject of several accolades and favorable write-ups.
