Granville Moore’s and Rose’s Luxury near Capitol Hill have some of the best food in D.C., according to Zagat’s 2015 restaurant rankings released today.
Rose’s Luxury (717 8th St. SE) is the District’s preeminent purveyor of small plates and tapas, although it isn’t the top eatery in the area, the restaurant guide said. The Barrack’s Row eatery, which Bon Appétit called “America’s best new restaurant of 2014,” ranked behind Fiola, Corduroy and Rasika as the best overall restaurant in D.C.
Zagat called Rose’s Luxury a “happy dining experience” with a menu that is “not afraid of bold flavors and some heat.” The food was “worth the wait,” the restaurant guide added, noting the restaurant’s policy against accepting most reservations. Rose’s Luxury only takes reservations for its roof garden, which has one table available to diners per night in warm weather.
A total of 3,721 locals reviewed more than 800 of the D.C. area’s restaurants to help Zagat determine the region’s best eateries.
