Two DC Restaurants on National List of 'Most Anticipated Openings'

Argentine steakhouse Rural Society opens this week.

Two DC Restaurants on National List of 'Most Anticipated Openings'
On a list of 48 anticipated restaurants opening their doors this summer across the nation, published last week by Eater, two of them are in Washington, D.C.

Those two are Maketto and Rural Society. Maketto will be located at 1351 H St. NE and Rural Society will be located at 1177 15th St. NW.

Maketto is described as "an Asian night market, with a chef's table, patio seating, a coffee bar, and more," according to Eater.

Here's what Eater has to say about Rural Society: "Philadelphia-based chef Jose Garces is expanding to DC this Summer with the July 3 opening of Rural Society. This Argentine steakhouse — one of  Eater DC's most anticipated openings — will offer charcuterie, various meats and fish prepared on a parilla, house-made pastas, and Argentine pizzas, among other things. AvroKo is behind the restaurant's design, which a press release says is in part inspired by "the rugged Gaucho, South American cowboy, culture as well as the refined style of Buenos Aires."
