When you are trying to navigate the yummy places in Northern Virginia, it can get a little hard sifting through yelp reviews, which can reflect people’s one-time bad experiences, right?! I decided I’d start making little lists of places that have great food, and the service tends to always be great. Double yay.
OK, so I like food. I like to eat it. I like to take people to eat it. I enjoy making sure people are fed. I like to cook, too. I am not always dining out, even though it may appear so. The thing is, I’m probably missing some of my favorites from the list, because I have forgotten some while doing the “brain dump” to this list. I started this list so that if someone was asking me about a good place to grab this, that or the other type of food, I had my go-to list. Of course, I’m always expanding it!
If you’re looking for a quick go-to list of new places to try, definitely check these places out because they are my faves…in no particular order.
