DC Food Faves:: Restaurant Round Up

pollo

Just so you know, this post is all about food.

The past few weeks have been filled with great eating in the DC area. As much as I LOVE descriptions of restaurants on the price, atmosphere, and the ingredients, for this post, I thought I’d just let the pictures speak for themselves. (Top photo: El Pollo Rico in Arlington, VA is an awesome value. A plate of juicy broiled chicken and 2 sides for $6.00)

Korean Barbeque at Honey Pig. I’m obsessed with the spicy cucumbers. Avoid this place on a weekend night, or be prepared to wait a long time. You could always bide your time at the karaoke place next door, though.

Below are pictures from a casual late dinner in the Bar at Restaurant Eve. Old Town, Alexandria was packed one weekend night recently, so we opted for a cheese platter and homemade chips and dip at this cozy place. If you’re looking for creative cocktails, Restaurant Eve serves up the best seasonal versions.

After a chilly evening at the Mt Vernon Candelight Tour, we met our friends for a lovely dinner at Bastille, where we had shrimp fritters, burgers with foie gras, roasted duck, and apple tarte tatin.
