For nearly 20 years, the Restaurant Neighbor Award, developed in partnership with American Express, has highlighted outstanding charitable service and philanthropy in the hospitality industry.

This prestigious national award honors restaurants that go above and beyond in community service and aims to inspire other restaurateurs to get or stay involved in their local communities.

Three national winners will receive a $10,000 award to help support its favorite charity or community project. In addition to the award, the national winners will be flown to Washington, DC to receive the award at an awards dinner in March.

All state winners will receive a commemorative plaque to display in their restaurant and will be profiled on the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation's website highlighting their community activities.

The awards will be divided into three groups; philanthropic initiatives, celebrating diversity, and recognizing exemplary leadership. Hundreds of applications were received last year and just select eight winners were selected for the three categories.

Last year, winners included Carr's Steakhouse in Mayfield, Ky, Gregg's Restaurants & Pubs in East Greenwich, RI, Darden Specialty Restaurant Group in Orlando and Firehouse Subs in Jacksonville.
