WASHINGTON — Three D.C. restaurants made Bon Appétit’s top 50 new restaurants list for 2018, but only one made it in the top 10.
The food publication put Maydan at No. 2, just behind winner Nonesuch in Oklahoma City and in front of Ugly Baby in Brooklyn. Maydan, located on Florida Avenue NW, near 14th and W streets, is the second concept from restaurateur Rose Previte.
In 2014, Previte opened Compass Rose, which specializes in international street food. Maydan, which was also selected as one of the best restaurants of the year by Food & Wine magazine in April, focuses on North African and Middle Eastern cuisine and is known for its open-fire cooking. Previte also serves as the host of WETA’s “Check, Please!” food program.
