Beef Stroganoff

I've had a craving for beef stroganoff all afternoon. Is there place in the Northern Virginia area that serves a decent version? Thanks for your help!

  1. Try Chez Andre on E. Glebe in Alexandria. Don't think it's on the menu, but I've had it as a lunch special several times. Tasty!

    1. El Manantial in Reston has a great version on their lunch menu.

      1. I know Russia House in dupont has it, but i haven't had it. i know that isn't NOVA but if you havent satisfied your craving yet you might try it!

          There is also a Russia House in Herndon. Stroganoff is on the menu, although I've not tried it. I've always enjoyed the food ans service at Russia House.

            I've had the stroganoff at Russia House in Herndon. It was good, but it wasn't the type with slices of beef over egg noodles. It was a piece of tenderloin with stroganoff sauce on top, served with mashed potatoes. It was still tasty, but not what satisfied my craving. The day I went, there was a chicken stroganoff special (at lunch) that was sliced and over egg noodles. If I hadn't been with co-workers, I probably would've asked for egg noodles - but it was my first day of work and I didn't want to seem too needy! ;-)

            Now I'm craving stroganoff, so I'm interested in hearing other suggestions. I live out in Loudoun, so Arlington or Alexandria wouldn't work for me... and I'm on bedrest. I may have to get the hubby to go to El Manantial for me!

        2. the lamplighter resto in fairfax lists it as their first "specialty."

          i still haven't made it out there, but would like to give it a try....
