On June 15, 2015, Chef José Andrés will host the fourth annual Dine-N-Dash. This year, guests will enjoy specialty plates and craft drinks at thirty of Washington D.C.’s top restaurants and food trucks in one evening. All proceeds from the event will benefit World Central Kitchen, José Andrés’ international non-profit that focuses on smart solutions to hunger and poverty.
From 6 p.m. – 10 p.m., event-goers will walk through the city’s Penn Quarter and 14th Street neighborhoods, enjoying food, drink and music at all of the participating restaurants.

“Dine-N-Dash is about my favorite things—friends, family, good food and giving back,” Andrés said. “I am grateful to the Penn Quarter and 14th Street restaurants that are participating, and to my friends Eric Ripert and Erik Bruner-Yang, for joining us. People of Washington—this party is going to be amazing!”
