Known for its contemporary American cuisine and their passion for making, eating, and sharing good food with their community, Open Kitchen celebrates their four-year anniversary by giving back to its community and partnering with local non-profit Slow Food, DC chapter.  On October 7, 2013, Open Kitchen will generously donate 50% of the night’s sales to support Slow Food DC’s The Ark of Taste Garden program.

The Ark of Taste promotes the forgotten flavors of rare and regional foods that make up our country’s diverse cultural and culinary heritage. The DC Chapter will use the money donated to plant gardens at local public schools to raise awareness in the Northern Virginia community.
