Julii Tops Hottest Restaurant List

Julii at Pike & Rose is the hottest January 2019 restaurant in the D.C. metro area, according to Eater!

Located at 11915 Grand Park Ave., Julii was founded by the founders of Cava Grill. The French-Mediterranean restaurant boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and large rope lights.

The Levantine-influenced French bistro from the founders of Cava Grill added to the dining scene at the Pike & Rose development in December, brining an elegant ambiance accented in gold to go with impeccably presented dishes from bubbly chef Sasha Felikson (formerly of Doi Moi). Early hits inside the jewel box include the crispy trout entree, pistachio and fennel salt dinner rolls with whipped labneh butter, roasted bone marrow, and warm salmon nicoise salad. The packed bar area has quickly become a popular meeting ground for Basil Hayden Old Fashioneds and a refreshing mezcal cocktail called the Conquistador.
