Tucson Festival of Books

Rose Previte

Rose Previte is the owner of several of Washington, D.C.’s acclaimed restaurants: the Michelin-starred and James Beard Award finalist Maydān, Compass Rose, Kirby Club and Medina. Maydān quickly earned coveted spots on many national Best New Restaurants in America lists, including at Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, GQ and Eater; she was named a James Beard Award Semifinalist for Best New Restaurant in 2018; and she earned a Michelin star in 2019. She is also the cofounder of Go There Wines, a social-impact wine company. Raised in a food-loving Sicilian-Lebanese family in Ohio, Previte started working in food in her mother’s restaurant and Lebanese catering business. Her first restaurant, Compass Rose, was inspired by spending nearly three years traveling to more than 30 countries, all while she lived in Russia with her husband, David Greene, who posted there as the correspondent for NPR. She lives a bicoastal life between Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. "Maydān: Recipies from Lebanon and Beyond" is her book.
