so who is rose?

Rose was Chef Aaron's paternal grandmother. She was the youngest of 12 children!! And the first to be born in the United States after her parents immigrated from London. Aaron decided to name the restaurant after her as she was beloved by her family and friends. She was a baker, host, writer of poetry and plays, a piano player and (along with her husband Art) a thrower of parties. She enjoyed life and having fun -- two ideas we all strive to embody at the restaurant that bears her name.

what are my transportation options and is parking available nearby?

We're about a 10 minute walk from the Eastern Market metro station (orange and blue lines).

If you're driving, metered parking options abound on 8th Street SE in the parking lot underneath the 295 overpass (on 8th Street SE between I and Virginia Ave SE) as well as along some neighboring streets. At this time, we do not offer valet parking.

Taxis (yes, those are still around) are sometimes available as they travel towards the Eastern Market metro station but we also suggest using Uber and Lyft as they're quite efficient in Washington DC.
