Stomping Ground wins 12th annual Taste of Del Ray

Stomping Ground has won the people’s hearts, and their cheddar blue corn grits with a pork ragu did the trick. The Del Ray restaurant took home top honors by winning the people’s choice in the 12th annual Taste of Del Ray.

“We were blown away by the culinary creativity of our restaurants,” said Taste of Del Ray chair Karen Johnson.  “But, more than anything, we were so overwhelmed by the support of the community, even though we couldn’t hold our traditional in-person event.  This was a difficult year for restaurants, and the neighborhood really came out to celebrate the talented chefs in Del Ray.”

The judges this year were Alexandria Sheriff Dana Lawhorne and Chadwicks owner Trae Lamond, and the full results of the competition are below:

People’s Choice
  1. Stomping Ground
  2. Spice Kraft, for their Raj Kachori Chaat (Indian Street Food)
  3. Junction Bakery & Bistro, for their Chiquito Cubanos

Judges’ Choice

  2. Pork Barrel BBQ, for their White Chicken Chili
  3. Live Oak Restaurant/Elo’s Italian Pop-Up, for their Meatballs made with veal, pork, & beef, with creamy polenta, Pomodoro sauce, and Pecorino
  4. Honorable Mention: Swings Coffee Roasters, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Nitro Draft Latte
  5. Honorable Mention: Del Ray Pizzeria, Baked Avocado with Fried Egg & Cheddar
