Amanda, you missed one, kinda. In the OUTSTANDING RESTAURATEUR AWARD category, Wolfgang Puck (The Source in DC) is nominated.

I considered including that one but decided he's not primarily representing DC. Though I will say his contribution to our dining scene is "outstanding"!

Now if only one could have Jose Andres cooking appetizers, Eric Ziebold and Cathal Armstrong coordinating dinner, and Terry Theise presiding over drinks while lounging in Central Michel Richard, life would be perfect.
