Eater Names Maketto Restaurant of the Year.
Eater announced their restaurant awards, and some local places got a bit of love.
Restaurant of the Year
Two of the five nominees in this category are in the neighborhood. Masseria (1340 4th Street) and Maketto (1351 H Street) both got nods, with Maketto taking home the big prize.
Eater praises Maketto writing that the "uniquely-designed Taiwanese multi-concept restaurant and market in the H Street corridor, was worth the wait. The restaurant’s anticipated opening was one of the biggest restaurant stories of 2015, and the food and decor delivered on its promise."
Bartender of the Year
Devin Gong of CopyCat Co. (1110 H Street) was nominated.
So Hot Right Now
Sally's Middle Name (1320 H Street) was nominated.
Stone Cold Stunner
Masseria and Maketto both nominated. Maketto made it to the final round.
There were a total of seven categories, and places on H Street or in the Florida Avenue Market/Union Market area were nominated in four of the categories.
