Weekend Dining from Alexandria
I will be in Alexandria for three weeks, where should I go to eat on the weekends? I would prefer someplace I can walk to or ride the subway to...so I can enjoy alcoholic beverages.
jpschust is directing you to wonderful places in Old Town Alexandria. If your not familiar, go here. www.funside.com
The metro stop there is the King St. Metro. There is a free weekend (fri-sun, i believe) bus called the Dash bus. http://www.dashbus.com/s01_welcome.html
The Dash goes down King St., the main drag of Old Town. There are many, many restaurants and bars in Old Town. If you're into some drinking.....try Murphy's pub, Pat Troy's very Irish bar, O'Connel's bar and restaurant. Sit on the roof.
Just look around you and walk a little. You will find whatever your tastebuds are wanting. There is Hard Times Cafe for chili (chili mac), King St. Blues for bbq, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Lebanese.......
A wonderful place to sit is on the outdoor deck of the Chart House. It's on the Potomac with gorgeous views.
I'm comming from a point of view of a tourist. I would want to know these places if I were a visitor, not necessarily a "foodie".
