"Take a Bite" with Ristorante Piccolo & Watershed

Come eat with Micky!  I am an ambassador for Take a Bite Out of Breast Cancer, a Pink Jams event that is an outreach and fundraising campaign focusing on educating Washington, DC area residents about the importance of early detection and breast cancer awareness.
Did you know that Washington, DC has the highest breast cancer death rate for women in the United States? Many of those deaths are due to late diagnosis, and could have possibly been avoided through early detection and an understanding of risk factors.  For the entire month of October, chefs and restaurateurs commit their establishments to helping us in our mission – reaching tens of thousands of men and women in our area. For one day, a week, or the entire month, participating restaurants also generously donate a portion of their food and beverage sales so that we can continue our work to save lives.

Join me for dinner on October 12th at Ristorante Piccolo in historic Georgetown and "take a bite" out of breast cancer!  Make your reservation here and help support - 25% of all dinner and liquor sales will go towards this important cause. Menu items that stand out to me include: risotto ai frutti di mare, agnoloti ai porcini, pollo farcito, and of course tiramisu! 

In addition, throughout the entire month Ristorante Piccolo will be featuring a "pink" appetizer - Gamberi Rosa, which are sauteed tiger shrimp and roasted peppers with garlic in a light pink sauce and a "pink" cocktail - Pink Slipper, that is a concoction of raspberry Stoli, house made strawberry grappa, a touch of grenadine, and triple sec. $1 from each sale of these specialty "pink" items will be contributed to Pink Jams throughout October.

You can also join me for dinner on October 23rd at Todd Gray's Watershed in the Hilton Garden Inn in NOMA!  Make your reservation here and help support us - 25% of profits will go towards breast cancer research. Menu items that stand out to me include: baked oysters, pan roasted Maryland rockfish, and Watershed crab cakes - yum, clam bake anyone?!

If you can't join me on October 12th or 23rd, there are many other options for diners who wish to show their support. There are restaurants participating in a variety of DC area neighborhoods and on almost every single night in the month of October. Check out the Calendar for when to dine with any of the participating restaurants. Come eat with us and help support this great cause!
