A week before 40 or so restaurants take over Woodmont Triangle for the Taste of Bethesda, the Village of Friendship Heights will host its own food tasting event.
The Taste of Friendship Heights is scheduled for 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Village Center of Friendship Heights (4433 South Park Ave., Chevy Chase).
The event will feature food from 13 restaurants and businesses in Chevy Chase and Friendship Heights: Alfio’s La Trattoria, Clyde’s of Chevy Chase, Courtyard by Marriott of Chevy Chase, Frosting A Cupcakery, Indique Heights, Lia’s Restaurant, Maggiano’s, Mi Cocina, P.F. Chang’s, Potomac Pizza, Rosa Mexicano, Brighton Gardens and Whole Foods.
The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Jazz Band will return to provide music. There will also be face painting and a moonbounce for the kids and raffles from many of the participating restaurants.
A portion of the proceeds will go to the Community Council for the Homeless at Friendship Place, a D.C. homeless shelter.
