Pentagon Row

Have no choice but to meet old friends at Pentagon Row -- is Lebanese Taverna the best choice? Cuisine is less important than quality. Thanks

    I kind of like Thaiphoon- those are really your two choices in the Row. Lebanese Taverna is an odd place- I'll never understand how the food at their market can be as good as it is and the food at their restaurants never seems to match up.

      There's also a sushi joint, and a vietnamese joint in there too, but I've never dined in any of them.

        go to woo lae oak.
        it's right across the street, so not *tecnically* pentagon row, but it's quite good korean bbq.

          I thought that location closed?

            really? it's totally possible, as i haven't been in awhile. sad, though, as that's where i'd always try to go if unavoidably dragged to pentagon row...

            yup, just checked the website, and they are only in tyson's now.

              Oh darn! I was just there like 2 months ago. I hate going out to Tyson's...but I probably will, since Woo Lae Oak is so freakin' good.

            I really like the LT at that location -- the decor inside is really beautiful. You feel very far away from the mall. I've always enjoyed the food, although sometimes I've had less than great service. And I'm not one of those service freaks who goes in looking for mistakes. I imagine it is sort of hard to get all those small plates out at a correct pace, since I'm sure everyone has different preferences about how that should go. It actually seems like the service is better when it's really busy and they're cranking it out, than at off-peak hours when everyone's just sort of puttering around.

              I've eaten at the italian place at Pentagon Row and it is very good. I can't think of the name off the top of my head, but it is in the same section as LT and Champp's. Very nice atmosphere, good food and service.
