I have an emergency...

Please help. I need a restaurant recomendation for northern Virginia for a birthday on Saturday. I'm looking for good food obviously (steaks are always a winner) but a good bar for drinks before hand is paramount. Live in the Leesburg area and want to avoid heading into DC. New to the area and there are just too many chains. Please help. I appreciate any input.

  1. It is a little bit of a hike for you, but if you can drag yourself to Great Falls, consider the following:

    Drinks before and/or after at the Old Brogue

    Dinner at Mediterranee Restaurant

    1. re: dcs

      I appreciate the quick response. I'll look into Mediterranee. That seems close to what I'm looking for.

    2. Clydes past tysons corners (outside the beltway) -- good bar, good food

        1. Maybe Colvin Run Tavern? I've only been once, and it was fine - but seemed to have a very lively bar scene, and you sure can get a steak. might be what you're looking for.

          1. 2941 seems like a good option for you. They have a bar and it's good for special occasions.
