The Battle of Broad Street Has a Winner

The Battle of Broad Street, which wrapped up earlier tonight, was a fundraising event that brought together Harvey’s — a local restaurant that opened earlier this year — the Neighborhood Barbershop and Mister Finster’s Tattoo Studio all with the goal of raising funds for the Falls Church Education Foundation (FCEF). The three local businesses prepared special food items with the goal of winning ‘best dish’ at the end of the night; Audacious Aleworks and Metro Cellars were there to provide drinks to go along with each dish. 10 percent of the sales from tonight will be donated to the FCEF in support of their efforts.

Jay, from the Neighborhood Barbershop, won the Battle. The ‘best dish’ that sold out first was his bacon-wrapped stuff poblano peppers. It will be a featured menu item at Harvey’s for one month, with $1 from each sale going towards helping the FCEF in a continuing effort. For more information on the FCEF, visit
