There’s plenty of debate as to whether Washington is a true Southern city, but one thing is certain: Rose’s Luxury is a great restaurant. So great, in fact, that Southern Living magazine gave it second place on its list of the 10 Best New Restaurants in the South, which leads with the top ten new eateries.
“Everything about Rose’s Luxury seems easy, accessible, achievable,” writes deputy editor Jennifer V. Cole. “But that doesn’t mean the food and drink aren’t serious . . . As with anything, it all boils down to the execution. And so far, Rose’s is doing luxury right.”
The ranking is part of the magazine’s coverage of the 100 Best Southern Restaurants, which include a number of Washington locations. Restaurant Eve, Fiola Mare, Jaleo, Komi, Little Serow, and Rasika West End, all made the list, as did a number of farther-afield Virginia stops for those of you looking to travel.
