The Number 68 Project
Driving a discourse in dining with Washington’s most talented and ambitious young chefs.
Number 68 Project’s pop-up dinner series was established as a platform for cultural dialogue, a test kitchen for young and ambitious chefs and a vehicle to take dining to the next level. The Number 68 Project explored the intersection of food and culture with creative collaborators driving the narrative. Tastemakers, opinion leaders and cultural enthusiasts came together once-a-week for two months for an experiential discourse in dining. Chefs such as Daniel Singhofen of Eola, Ed Witt of 701, and Nick Stefanelli of Bibiana cooked for the likes of Amanda Hesser of the NY Times, Michele Norris of NPR, and Barton Seaver of National Geographic, among others. Roadside worked closely with Number 68 to deepen the dining experience, secure culinary talent, and develop relationships with leading brands that were integrated into the dinners and charity auction. A second iteration of the concept is currently underway.
