Rose Restaurant same as Cafe Rose?

We were looking at the Persian phone book at Kabob Bazaar in Arlington and saw there is now a Rose Restaurant in Vienna. Can this be the same as the late lamented Cafe Rose that was in Falls Church? Anyone been?

  1. Yes. The owners' daughter confirmed this on Tyler Cowen's site...and I believe it had changed its name to Rose Restaurant prior to closing in Falls Church.

    1. Wow, this is really great news. I will have to go there as soon as possible. Cafe Rose was a veritable star in the Chowhound firmament.

      Yeah, I hate the way that sounds, too.

      1. I believe so. I ate there a week ago and it was very good. It's one of the few kabob shops that serves a few stews as well as grilled meat.

        And speaking of Kabob shops, I noticed that there's a new one about to open in the shopping center across Wilson Blvd from the Eden Center, in the place where a Thai restaurant used to be. I'm thinking it's Kabob Express, but I just caught a glimpse of it from Wilson Blvd when driving by.

        1. By chance was the Falls Church Rose Restaurant the one on the ground floor of the non-descript motel right in town, across from Anythony's? I distinctly remember a neon rose but was always skeptical to try it.

          1. I was a fan of Rose in Falls Church as well. What is the address of the new location in Vienna?
