Chinese New Year; Jose Andres goes Rogue; Restaurant Recap

Another culinary treat that caught my eye this morning: Celebrity chef Jose Andres, who got quite the name drop in the hilarious, if not accurately-named [Expletive] DC Says video that hit the Internet last week, is the latest boldfaced name to take the reins at Rogue 24.

The James Beard-Award winner has teamed up with Ruben Garcia (a familiar duo for Minibar fans) to offer a 24-course dining experience. Gilt City is offering a package priced at $185.

I’ve never been to Rogue 24 (the brainchild of R.J. Cooper, who is recovering from open-heart surgery). But as the aforementioned video cheekily notes, Jose Andres is behind some of the District’s top restaurants, including Jaleo and Oyamel, where I took in inventive price-fixed menus during Restaurant Week.
