If it is food you’re worried about while at the IAC 2019, don’t worry – we have you covered. Not only does the convention center have its own catering facilities, there are also numerous restaurants in the neighborhood.


The convention center’s catering staff incorporates fresh, local ingredients, which the chefs turn into classic regional favorites combined with innovative international cuisine. Just a few of the tastes that the catering staff turns out are: barbeque, gourmet salads and authentic Philadelphia cheesesteaks, as well as cuisine from Asia, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean– a taste extravaganza.

If you want to get out of the convention center, you’ll find plenty of dining options nearby. Enjoy Belgian cuisine and beer at Brasserie Beck; enjoy authentic Louisiana “Po-boy” sandwiches at Po-Boy Jim’s on H Street; check out the fine dining at Corduroy, just steps from the front of the convention center; or debate the latest world’s latest political happenings at Busboys and Poets; take in unique tastes and familiar favorites at Proof; or try some American barbeque, specifically Texas-style, at Texas Jack’s.
