For the past decade, Barracks Row Main Street has worked tirelessly to preserve and enhance Capitol Hill’s historic 8th Street, SE, commercial corridor and to revitalize its business community.
The group’s focus is the five blocks of 8th Street that stretch south from Pennsylvania Ave S.E. to the terminus of 8th Street at the Washington Navy Yard along M Street, S.E.
Barracks Row is located eight blocks east of the U.S. Capitol.
Our annual weekend of cooking classes is back: Barracks Row Culinary Education Crawl 2015 -
Who: Chefs and restaurant owners on Capitol Hill
What: 2015 Culinary Education Crawl on Capitol Hill; twenty five cooking classes will take place at Capitol Hill restaurants!
When: For three days, November 14, 15 and 16 the neighborhood becomes a cooking school campus. Build a schedule just like you did in college and sign up for classes here.
Where: The central campus is on Barracks Row. This year there is also a North Campus near Eastern Market and a South Campus at the Capitol Riverfront. Classes are easy to get to by foot, bike, Metro (Eastern Market or Navy Yard Metro) or car. If you drive, use Lot L for Capitol Riverfront restaurants. On Barracks Row there is a metered DC parking lot under Interstate 695 at 8th Street. If you are headed to Eastern Market area classes, Colonial Parking is at 600 Pennsylvania Ave, SE.
Why: With the holidays ahead there will be sit down dinners, pot-luck socials and snacks in front of the TV during ballgames. Learn new, chef-taught recipes – whether you are staying in town as host or traveling back home as a guest. You’ll also discover the backstory behind the restaurants of Capital Hill. With chefs and cuisines from all over the world, holiday visitors will be fascinated with an area restaurant tour!
