PRESS: Eater DC “The 38 Essential Washington Restaurants”

Humbled that our tiny little 9 table restaurant has made Eater DC’s “Eater 38”.  This list is known as the list that Washingtonian’s consider essential restaurants in our area. Thank you all for the love!


It’s time to update the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, “Can you recommend a restaurant?” This highly elite group covers the entire city and surrounding areas, spans myriad cuisines and budgets, and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs, except for those occasions when you absolutely must spend half a paycheck. Every couple of months, we’ll be adding pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months), or have stepped up their game.

This time around, Eater is adding some new blood to the list. Restaurants Birch & Barley, Brasserie Beck, Vidalia, Fishnet, Liberty Tavern and Graffiato are gone for now — not because they’re not great, but in order allow room for some interesting newcomers. In their place: Ruan Thai, Rose’s Luxury, Maple Ave., Pizzeria Orso, Kapnos and DGS Delicatessen. All of these changes are reflected in totally random order here.

From the folks at Eater DC:

Rising star chef Tim Ma puts out big flavors in a tiny space in Vienna (similar dishes can also be found in his newer venture, Water & Wall). Many dishes have an Asian twist, but the restaurant can also put out an impressive brunch and killer wings.
