Back in 2014, Bon Appetit named Rose’s Luxury on Capitol Hill the best new restaurant in the country. Now the magazine has gone one step further in recognizing DC’s restaurant scene.

On Thursday, DC was named “Restaurant City of the Year” by the food magazine, recognition that puts the city more firmly on the map as a destination for curious foodies.

However, it also likely means longer waits at a handful of restaurants around town, particularly spots like Tail Up Goat, Bad Saint and The Dabney, three eateries that are all finalists for Bon Appetit’s ten best new restaurants in the country.

“…there’s an energy and excitement surrounding all the new places that is palpable,” Bon Appetit’s Andrew Knowlton wrote. “D.C. is bubbling with momentum. You go in to one place, and you hear about another exciting spot just down the street. The table next to you isn’t only talking politics; they’re discussing last night’s cacio e pepe, too.”
