The July Hit List: Joon, Oyster Oyster, Philippe Chow, and More


In Washington, D.C., there’s always a reason to celebrate, especially if it’s July, when our nation’s capital throws down for one of the most celebrated fireworks displays in the country.

Looking to score a dining reservation? Better book it fast to secure dinner with a view of the fireworks. There are also plenty of other reasons to celebrate summer in the DMV — from Chesapeake Bay blue crabs (now in season), Maryland-style fried chicken, and ice cream shops with quite the buzz.

If all this wasn’t enough to make you hungry, you might also celebrate Rob Rubba’s recent win as James Beard’s Outstanding Chef. Not surprising, reservations are going fast for his plant-based tasting menu. We’re here to help with our latest Resy Hit List, meant to direct you to the very best of summer.
