Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets (HDCMS) is expanding its popular “Taste of Dupont” restaurant fund-raiser event this spring with an additional event focusing on the myriad restaurants lining Connecticut Avenue, to be held on Tuesday, May 18th, from 6 to 9pm.

Participating restaurants in the “Taste of Connecticut Avenue,” as it is being called, will be offering special tastings from their current menus or of their chef’s new creations; some of the restaurants will also be pairing their offerings with a specially priced cocktail, wine or beer.

Participants can create their own progressive dinners by visiting any of the Connecticut Avenue restaurants that will be participating in the event, including Darlington House, the new Black Fox Lounge, Café Dupont in the Hotel Dupont, and the new Lounge One on 20th Street, among others. A complete restaurant list with the tasting items being offered by each, along with a Google map pinpointing their locations, is available at

Individual tasting tickets are priced at $5, or a package of five for $20, and may be purchased in advance online at and held at the Dupont Circle Resource Center, where they will also be sold on the evening of the event, starting at 5 pm. The Center is located in the small, one-story red brick building on the west side of Dupont Circle between P Street and Massachusetts Avenue. Proceeds will be used to support HDCMS’ initiatives focused on improving the appearance and overall conditions of the neighborhood’s business areas along Connecticut Avenue, P Street, 17th and 18th Streets.
