“Mess Hall (Edgewood Street NE) – Washington DC’s premiere food incubator based in Edgewood, is pleased to present “Ramen World 4.”
Once a year, Mess Hall opens its event space AND its private kitchens to host DC’s favorite Asian food concepts. The uniquely designed space enables attendees to go behind the scenes and enjoy dishes that are prepared hot and fresh in front of them, as ramen should be served.
