Let’s start with what I ate.
Patty melt burger-grilled cheese, fried onions, ff, chili mayo …………………………. 15
It’s the 4th item as you read down the lunch menu at Rose and Sons and apparently one of the most popular choices among customers. The reason is obvious..DELISH! The patty is perfectly cooked, the mayo has a nice little tang, cheese, toasted rye bread, remember to ask for the chilli pepper sauce dip as well. Totally yum! I was full but still ate the whole thing; I chose to ignore the calorie count. I paired it with a lovely Riesling.
The restaurant has taken over the space once occupied by Dupont strip institution, People’s Foods. It shut its doors in the summer of 2012 after a half century of slinging 24 hour greasy spoon Greek fare.
Anthony Rose the new proprietor of Rose and Sons was Executive Chef at the Drake Hotel. The space has about 30 seats…most are sharing tables….all are very comfortable indeed.
