Rose's Luxury: Washington D.C.'s Most Out-There Pasta
“It’s walk-in only, and the wait can be two hours long. Out-there dishes, such as the lychee salad with corn nuts and the strawberry pasta, are well worth the wait, though.” —Local food blogger Zach Patton of The Bitten Word on his essential eats in the District.

All Rosy on Barracks Row
Less than a year after its opening, Bon Appétit Magazine rated Rose's Luxury as the #1 Best New Restaurant in the United States. Since 2013, chef-owner Aaron Silverman's "farmhouse-style" restaurant, in the heart of Barracks Row, brings creative cooking reminiscent of his travels and culinary training in the form of small and family-style plates. An array of flavors ranging from Southern to Mexican and Mediterranean to Southeast Asian. Notable dishes include pork sausage and lychee salad, classic cacio e pepe pasta, pickle-brined honey glazed fried chicken topped with benne seeds, and slow-smoked brisket with buttery toast and cole slaw. Being a no-reservations and walk-in only restaurant, line up early before the 5pm opening time and go for the seats at the counter facing the open kitchen and wood-burning stove for best views.
