R.J. Cooper

Rogue 24, Washington, D.C., and Gypsy Soul, Fairfax, VA

JBF Award winner R.J. Cooper treats discerning D.C.-area diners to modernist American cuisine with fanciful 24-course menus at one of his restaurants and an intimate study of Mid-Atlantic farmland at the other. Join us at the Beard House for his elaborate Brandt Beef dégustation and the opportunity to taste both of his lauded concepts under one roof.
