Say Yum: Rogue 24

Can't get enough of James Beard winner R.J. Cooper (formerly of Vidalia)? Search no further - coming this winter is his latest concept, Rogue 24. Located in the historic Blagden Alley, part of the Mount Vernon Square neighborhood, the 52-seat restaurant will serve only Cooper's interactive 24-course menu, a "progression of small dishes that excite the senses, tantalize the palate, and awaken curiosity."

Rogue will provide an effortless space for the diner to enjoy the imagination of Cooper’s menu.  The avant-garde beverage program will house a beverage director that will serve as both sommelier and mixologist and will prepare all beverages at a tableside cart, providing innovative pairings that will stimulate the entire experience. Eight beverage (a combination of wine, cocktails and beer) pairings will be offered throughout the 24-course meal.

Rogue will provide an emotional experience. That is what creates memorable meals—more than the food, the wine, and the service, the overall culture of the restaurant must evoke emotions in its guests,” said Cooper. Rogue 24 will be open for one dinner seating Tuesday-Thursday and two dinner seatings Friday and Saturday evenings. The fixed menu price is $130, $140 for non-alcoholic beverage pairings and $170 for alcoholic beverage pairings.

We'll keep you posted as an opening date is firmed up!
