Dine Arounds:
Following the RamQuest-sponsored TIPAC Reception on Tuesday, we have made reservations at several of Washington's best restaurants. At the conference registration desk, you can sign up for a dinner and take advantage of these additional opportunities to network and enjoy all that D.C. has to offer.

  • District ChopHouse & Brewery: A popular gathering place, ChopHouse prides itself in serving American steakhouse classics, paired with the city’s finest handcrafted beers brewed on site. But it’s much more than a steakhouse, offering hand-cut chops, fresh seafood and an extensive wine list, all in a unique turn of the century bank transformed into one of Washington’s hot spots.
  • Bobby Vans Grill: Bringing the premier New York steakhouse to Washington, DC, Bobby Van’s Steakhouse opened its doors in the national capital in March of 2000. Named Top Steakhouse by Washington Magazine and awarded Best Porterhouse in D.C. by the Washingtonian, Bobby Van’s Steakhouse is just steps from the National Mall and the Smithsonian, and a block from the White House.
  • Capitol City Brewing: The state-of-the-art brew-house enables the restaurant’s brewers to closely monitor each phase of the brewing process and bring the beer to you within hours of completion. Meanwhile, the menu features cuisine using ingredients cultivated in the Mid-Atlantic area. Many of the items were developed specifically with its beer in mind.
  • Co Co. Sala: D.C.’s chocolate lounge and boutique provides a tantalizing chocolate, coffee and cocktail experience. The lounge features dramatic wave walls that emulate flowing chocolate while defining intimate seating areas. Specializing in cuisine with global flavors, patrons can satisfy cravings of the salty and savory variety with dishes incorporating chocolate and coffee in surprisingly unique mediums.
  • Finemondo: Those who reside in the country in Italy are said to live at the end of the world, or in Italian “Alla Fine Del Mondo.” Chef Savino Recine uses this to name his restaurant, which features the flavors of his youth while growing up in Rome. Finemondo features Italian country kitchen dining in a comfortable environment. Dishes such as OssoBuco are among the results. Make sure not to miss homemade desserts, with selections such as il tiramisu and frutti di bosco.
