ALEXANDRIA, VA. - A festive crowd and a full slate of top restaurants participated in the tenth annual Taste of Del Ray on Sunday, June 3. The sold-out food festival showcased 16 neighborhood establishments in a spirited competition.

The 1,000 tickets reserved for advance online/in-person sales sold out by Saturday afternoon. The weather was the only complicating factor. But the heavy rain that moved the festival inside to the Mount Vernon Recreation Center did nothing to dampen the spirit of the event. The space was crowded with attendees and everyone seemed to enjoy sampling the various offerings and casting a vote for their favorite.

Del Ray Café won the 2018 Judges' Choice Award for their dessert and soup offerings – chouquettes  with raspberry and chocolate dipping sauces, plus cold corn soup and chilled gazpacho. Junction Bakery & Bistro's cubano sandwich won the People's Choice Award, as voted by festival attendees. Last year’s winners were Evening Star Café (Judges' Choice) and Pork Barrel BBQ (People’s Choice). The complete list of 2018 Taste of Del Ray winners follows.
