Each year on a perfect evening in June, Barracks Row Main Street celebrates our ongoing improvements along the Row with a Garden Party. From the front lawn of a spectacular Capitol Hill Victorian notes from a jazz duo float along to meet our arriving guests. The scene soon becomes even more vivid as friends from all over the neighborhood meet and mingle attired in their summer best - from bright sundresses and seersucker suits, to white linen frocks and Hawaiian shirts. Joining the festivities are the chefs of Barracks Row! Usually behind the scenes working hard in hot kitchens at this party our chefs are there in the garden ready to meet the crowd with samples of their latest recipes.
