Another day, another accolade for Rose’s Luxury, this time from Southern Living magazine. The publication just announced their list of the South’s 30 Best Restaurants, from San Antonio to Baltimore. Chef/owner Aaron Silverman has been raking in the awards, topping lists from Bon Appétit to GQ.*

The Southern Living team, which included big-name chefs like Sean Brock, were fans of Rose’s coconut milk ice cream and the spaghetti with spicy strawberry sauce (fruit is a strong suit, fitting for a chef opening a restaurant called Pineapple and Pearls). Over in Baltimore, Woodberry Kitchen also made the list. Congrats to both, and good luck to anyone vying for tables.
