VSDC Restaurant Visit – Sunrise Caribbean Cuisine

VSDC is looking forward to spending another evening enjoying vegan food with old and new friends alike.

Restaurant: This Caribbean restaurant in the food court of Union Station has an extensive selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes.  It is accessible from the Union Station (red line) metro stop. 50 Massachusetts Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20002.

RSVP:  Since reservations are based on the number of RSVP’s, please do not RSVP “YES” unless you are sure you will attend.  Please be considerate of the restaurant, VSDC, and the others who want to attend by changing your RSVP if you are no longer able to come. The restaurant sets aside seating based on the RSVP’s, and it hurts the restaurant and VSDC when people do not show up.

VSDC will check people in as they arrive at the restaurant and only those who have RSVP’d YES will be permitted to sit with the group.

Waiting List: If the RSVP’s are full, please sign up for the waiting list if you are interested in attending. Those on the waiting list will be automatically moved up when someone changes their RSVP.

Payment: Each person is responsible for paying for his or her own meal and beverages. Everyone will order on their own and pay directly to the restaurant.

Metro station: Sunrise Caribbean Cuisine is located at the Union Station metro line (Red Line).

Accessibility: We want to ensure that everyone can enjoy our events. Please email the event coordinators if you need accommodations.

Inclement Weather: In the event of inclement weather, this event may be cancelled so please check your email beforehand.

    VSDC hopes everyone had a good time! Sunrise Caribbean has a wonderful selection of vegan food, including deserts (the vegan mac and cheese is incredible!). They are conveniently located inside the food court at Union Station. It was a perfect location because we had a whole section of the food court to ourselves, and everyone was able to relax and talk (and easily go back up for more food!). Thanks to Cleveland for finding these wonderful restaurants! It was great seeing everyone and we hope to see you at the next VSDC monthly restaurant visit, which are held on the first Saturday of every month.

    Sunrise Caribbean is downstairs in the food court in Union Station. When you get downstairs in the good court, turn left. We are a room off to the left side.
