Rose’s Luxury

717 8th St SE, Washington, DC 20003, USA

The hottest seat in town is at Rose’s Luxury, the foodie favorite spot in DC that everyone is raving about. Owner Aaron Silverman boasts quite the resume, having worked for some big culinary names, among them Sean Brock (of Charleston’s Husk fame) and David Chang (owner of New York City’s Momofuku). In this endeavor, he creates small and family-style dishes for the table to share, and the oft-changing menu can include such specialties as crispy pig's ear salad with mango and cabbage, and hand-cut pasta with caramelized cauliflower.

The restaurant famously doesn't take reservations, and many begin lining up for a table around 5pm. But if you take any local's word for it—or Bon Appetit magazine's—the food is worth the wait.
