I came upon this restaurant by accident. In the past, when I have searched for molecular cuisine restaurants in DC, only minibarDC came up. I had not visited DC in a while, but I did not do a search. Instead, I was looking through OpenTable.com for a restaurant to reserve for a planned dinner with some friends. While I was scrolling through the choices, the Rogue24 listing caught my attention. There were no reviews, the price was listed at a $$$$ rating, and the tagline seemed to indicate some innovative preparation techniques. When I checked out the website, it sounded exactly like a place I would need to try. They serve either a 4-, 16, or 24-course menu. There were no sample menus on the website, just pictures of some of the food. Unlike many restaurants of this type, there were no specific sittings – you reserved a time slot like any other restaurant. During one of the coldest weeks ever in DC, it was easy to get a reservation.
The restaurant is located halfway up a “historic” alley near the Washington Convention Center. It was only a 5-minute walk from the nearest Metro stop.
