Award Winner

Vikram Sunderam

Rasika and Rasika West End, Washington, D.C.

Named after the Sanskrit word for “flavors,” Rasika always overdelivers on taste, thanks largely to multiple Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic award nominee Vikram Sunderam, whose talents have led Washington Post critic Tom Sietsema to declare that “the best Indian restaurant in the country is in our backyard.”
