You have a few more days to score tickets to an annual showcase of Capitol Hill’s best restaurants and bars to benefit one of Capitol Hill’s best causes. Omnivorous 2013 is Friday, September 27th at The Summit space at Summit and E Pike. Tickets are $80 for a night of food and drink from more than 20 bars, restaurants and cafes. Proceeds support nonprofit housing developer and one of the few champions on the Hill working to keep city living affordable, Capitol Hill Housing. Backing CHH is an even bigger deal this year as the developer works to open its 12th Ave Arts project which will create theater and nonprofit office space, retail and affordable housing.

More details on Omnivorous including Quinn’s “slow cooked leg of lamb” and Mamnoon’s “Mouhallabia ~ Milk pudding, Pistachio, Fig jam” as well as a complete roster of participants, below.
