Very rarely does the name of a restaurant say it all. The Pig & The Pearl is the exception. The newest resto to boost Atlantic Station’s growing culinary scene is a best-of-both-worlds combination of smoked meats and seafood, both of which are done flawlessly.

High Society

Who knew that when Victor Albisu opened chic Del Campo in Penn Quarter last year that upscale South American asado would suddenly become the next big thing? Cases in point: Richard Sandoval’s Toro Toro pan-Latin steakhouse, which opened in the spring, and Rural Society, which was opened in July at the Loews Madison Hotel by James Beard Award-winning chef Jose Garces. It’s the latest in a bevy of restaurateurs expanding into Washington with thoughts of culinary gold. Rural Society is Garces’ 17th restaurant.
