What's best and why?

  1. You should probably consider posting this on a different board than DC/Baltimore, which are about 3 and 4 hours distant, respectively, from your destination.

    1. I was there in 2003 and 2005 so my recommendations would be outdated.

      1. I love Opus 9 and make a point of going there to visit when I am in the area visiting my parents.

        Why are they so great? I have always really enjoyed the service and atmosphere, and while relatively basic, everything I've had from their menu has been outstanding.

          Went to Opus 9 two weeks ago was one of the worse meals I have had anywhere. Seated in a cold corner of restaurant my steak overcooked wife's steak very under cooked. When we talked to the manager he could have cared less. We were not the only table in the section that complained about food and service. Never again.

            I hate to hear that -- I hope that you were just there on an off night, and that some cataclysmic change hasn't happened since I was last there!

            I will admit that I am a novice chowhound, so I'm sure that I've got some room to mature in my culinary preferences.

        2. The Green Leafe near the William and Mary football field. Why? The sandwiches are good, but the beer on tap is great! Large pitchers as well.

          1. Greenleafe does have a killer beer selection. We had a great lunch at Blue Talon Bistro a couple weeks ago. Casual french menu, but done very well. I reported on our dining in another thread titled Williamsburg Help.

              We love the large pitcher of hefeweizen at Greenleafe!
