Seasonal Fare

News on the local dining scene

Seasonal Fare On the Road
James Beard award-winning chef RJ Cooper of DC’s Rogue 24 has opened Gypsy Soul, a new restaurant in Fairfax’s Mosaic District. Cooper was inspired to create a spot where his wife Judy and their twins Ava and Bridgett (pictured with the chef, inset) could enjoy casual American fare made with ingredients from local farms. Interiors with cast-metal and leather accents pay tribute to Cooper’s love of motorcycle riding. 703-992-0933; gypsysoul-va.com
