Can anyone recommend restaurants with great food, less formal atmosphere and great prices in the Pentagon City area for thirtysomethings, ethnic fare, and then some of your favorite spots, generally? Looking for some GOOD FOOD restaurants/secret places from now through the fall.

    I am surprised no one mentioned Lebanese Taverna. Yes it is a small chain, but they have good Lebanese goof. Less formal, decent prices, and ethnic. But not secret at all. I don't think anything in Pentagon City is a secret.

    Up in Courthouse Minh's is good for Vietnamese and there is Nam Viet in Clarendon. There is also Guajillo in Roslyn and Pho 75.

      Kabob Palace is only a five minute drive. Awesomely consistent Afghan kabobs, hole in the wall atmosphere. Search this board for "Crystal City" for other recommendations that are very close to Pentagon City.
