Where should I eat in Arlington tonight?
I feel like I have been everywhere at least twice. Ho hum.
That's certainly a broad question. Depends on what you're in the mood for, I suppose. Arlington has some incredible Vietnamese, some of the greatest Latin American chicken, and lots of overall good eats.
If it's me, I go stand in line at Ray's the Steaks.
We live in Arlington and have a few favorites that maybe you have not been to -- so here goes:
Layalina -- Lebanese near Wilson Blvd and George Mason
Nam Viet -- on N. Hudson just off Wilson in Clarendon
Crystal Thai -- in little shopping center on Rt. 50 at N. 1st Street -- has Ouback Rest in it
El Paso Cafe -- good family run Mexican place at N. Glebe and Pershing
El Charito Chiamante -- excellent carry-out Mexican/Salvadorian on Wash Blvd just east of Pershing
Pasha Cafe -- very good Medit/Middle Eastern on Lee Hwy at Quincy
Portobellos -- very good American on Lee Hwy near Pasha Cafe
Baymian -- very good Afgan place on Rt. 7 at Columbia Pike
Kabab Bazaar -- our favorite kabab place in Wilson in Clarendon
Sangam -- excellent Indian at Comfort Inn at N. Glebe and Wash Blvd
Restaurant Vero -- excellent American on Lee Hwy near Lexington St.
Del Merie Grill -- in highrise bldg on Mt. Vernon Ave in Alexandria
Willow -- excellent American in Ballston
Village Bistro -- in same strip as Rays the Steak in Rosslyn -- good casual French bistro
Pie-Tanza -- very good pizza and salads in Lee-Harrison shopping center on Lee Hwy -- families mostly until after 8pm or so
Let us know where you went and how it was.
Sorry, BRL, but I wouldn't eat at Willow if you were paying and you dragged me in there at gunpoint. Tracy needs to get her act together, which apparently she left back at Kinkaid's.
Layalina has lost it's touch too. Service is dragging a bit and the food is not as attentive as it was a few years ago. Mamma needs to get back into the kitchen.
I like Nam Viet and I eat there often, but it wouldn't be in the top 5 at the Eden Center in Falls Church.
Good list otherwise, except you didn't include Ray's the Steaks.....
Go to Flavors one more time and while you're waiting the 20 minutes for your fried chicken, contemplate on a more specific question.
Oops, sorry, it's past closing time, I think. Hope you had a good dinner wherever you went.
