Good Eats: Rose's Luxury

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

A couple weekends ago, my friends and I tried a new restaurant in the Barracks Row neighborhood of DC.  Barracks Row is a recently gentrified neighborhood of Washington with quiet streets and a slew of charming and delicious restaurants.
 Rose's Luxuryis one of this area's highly praised establishments.  Acclaimed by Bon Appetit as being "in the business of making people happy," Rose's Luxury has cultivated a prestigious reputation.  In hopes that it would be worth it, my friends and I bit the bullet and waited on the 45 minute line.

As the clock hit 5 PM, twinkling lights glimmered through the restaurant window and waiters arranged candles on the tables. Upon entering, I was surprised by the restaurant's industrial decor.  Surrounding the tables were exposed beams and cement walls, but the lighting gave the restaurant a cozy and warm feeling.  I was lucky enough to be accompanied by a friend's family, and we ended up ordering every plate on the small sized menu.  Everything was well-done, but as a pescatarian and pasta lover, my favorite dishes were: 1) the cacio e pepe (which was as delicious as it is in Rome); 2) the cauliflower (breaded, juicy, and paired with a greek-yogurt sauce); and 3) the rigatoni with parmesan cream sauce and truffled breadcrumbs.  The menu changes with the seasons and I have no doubt that each season rivals the next.  You can find the website here.  This place is a go-to if you're in the DC area.
