Starting last Friday (June 1) and running through the weekend, 14 Del Ray restaurants competed for the 13th annual honor by offering three new $5 specials.
“This is the first time we’ve ever won,” Bella Napoli’s owner Oscar Bermudez said.
A team of judges awarded second place to Matt and Tony’s All-Day Kitchen + Bar for their cornflake French toast with pecan syrup; and Pork Barrel BBQ’s nachos were deemed messy but worth it enough to take third place.
“Bella Napoli is like a quiet gem on the Avenue,” said Del Ray Business Association President Lauren Fisher. “The owner, Oscar, provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere and great food. He has been a great supporter of Del Ray community events and we are thrilled that he won this year.”
The event officially kicked off at a VIP reception last Thursday at Jack Taylor’s Alexandria Toyota.
Over the weekend, Diners were also encouraged to chime in on their favorite dishes during the three-day dining experience. The top People’s Choice Award was given to Spice Kraft Indian Bistro-Delray for their avocado banana and beet chaat, followed by Bella Napoli’s lobster ravioli taking second and Pork Barrel’s nachos bringing home another third place.
