  • A friendly neighborhood vibe on the first floor of a hotel? Sounds ironic, but our First Look on the Riggsby proved that a straightforward simple menu can make all the difference in an era where others are trying too hard to be different.

  • We fed our inner beasts by trying out Birch and Barley’s Beast Feast. Meat lovers rejoice because this feast includes pig, duck, lamb, fish and much more. Make sure to bring at least 5-7 friends, if you have any.
  • We tried Blackwall Hitch in Old Town, Alexandria, right by the waterfront. Get the soft shell crab. It’s only right to enjoy seafood when you’re that close to it.

  • Beer infused Gouda cheese served with a nice fluffy pretzel? Count us in. We tried the City Tap House Summer Menu and it was just as good and thoughtfully curated as their extensive beer selection.

  • Our First Look at Walter’s Sports Bar opening Friday proves that although it’s an ideal place to watch a game, it’s also ideal to enjoy a happy hour with drafts from the east and west coast.
