If you’re vacationing in Washington, D.C., Rose’s Luxury is one restaurant you’ll want to be sure to visit. It was voted the number one restaurant on Bon Appetit‘s “Hot 10, 2014” list.
The man behind the success and popularity of Rose’s Luxury is chef and owner Aaron Silverman. The reason behind the success is that he focuses his creativity on the menu, but he cares even more about the people who visit his establishment.
Silverman planned the restaurant for years. He gradually collected vintage glasses and other items to add that special something and he tested different dishes looking for those he’d want to add to his menu.
The name of his restaurant honors his foodie grandmother. The “Luxury” part of the name is related to his fascination with true hospitality which he says is “about being taken care of, and making people happy.” They even serve solo diners one complimentary dish.
Affordable Farm Style Dining Room
The menu is broken into two categories: small dishes and family style. In all there are 12 small dishes that include cold options, grilled foods, pasta, and a selection of other delicious dishes all of which are reasonably priced for $14 or less.
The family style dishes come in large amounts shared by others dining with you. These menu items include things like Lemongrass-shellfish stew, fennel salad and garlic bread, smoked brisket and more.
