Goodstone Inn & Restaurant features a refined approach to French Country cuisine keeping to traditional and classical techniques. The innovative farm-to-table cuisine and the pastoral setting on a 265-acre estate in Virginia's wine and hunt country provide a unique dining experience for restaurant guests. <br />

"My wife and I had lunch at the Goodstone Inn last Saturday. The place is located in a remote rural area that is hard to find for visitors. We had the surprise 4 course-menu. The first course, a corn and potatoes soup was very tasty and filling. Then came a salad with blue cheese, which was rather unremarkable. The highlight of the menu was the main course: a cod fish that was very well cooked and seasoned. The dessert, though, was disappointing: a mediocre Panna Cotta that was not even fresh.
The wine by the glass selection was expensive (15 $ average) and not particularly striking. What was also missing from the menu were some 'amuse-bouches' between each course, which should be the rule for a restaurant with such ambitions. Overall, a decent culinary experience, but not more.

"We had the 18$ 2 course-lunch. The dining-room is very large and decorated with frescoes. The house salad was tasty and well-seasoned. My main course was a home-made Papardelle with fresh tomatoes. It was delicately cooked. We also had an extra dessert, the Mascarpone cheesecake, which was light and original. The service was attentive. The bread was also excellent and served with nice olive oil."

Located in the heart of the Chevy Chase villages, a mile away from busy Bethesda and a few blocks North of the District of Columbia, La Ferme has been serving Contemporary French food since 1985. Our covered patio can be used for dining or a private function (Spring to Fall) Romantic setting with lots of private tables (including 2 balcony tables for 2).

"The place is very cozy and nicely decorated.You feel like you are in a house in the French countryside. My 3-course lunch was excellent and moderately priced. It started with a tasty pate, followed by delicious and tender veal and ended with a light but creamy Amaretto souffle. The service was very attentive and we received a complementary glass of sparkling wine. I will definitely come back."

Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's flagship restaurant, located on Waverly Place in Greenwich Village, opened to great acclaim in 1998 and is as bustling and popular as ever. It offers three-star dining that redefines and reinvents the principles of Italian cuisine for 21st century America. An epic, landmark wine list, an exciting, quintessentially New York dining room and expert, attentive and cordial service make a table at Babbo one of New York’s prized possessions.

"We had lunch at Babbo last Saturday. My own entree was pretty good, Guinea Hen, and my appetizer was fine too (ravioli with black truffles). My wife's dishes, though, were quite disappointing. Her appetizer was too small to be a real Buffalo Mozzarella (my wife regularly goes to Northern Italy and has some each time). Her entree, linguine with clams, was tasteless and without any sauce. Moreover, the wine list by the glass is very expensive, with an average price of more than 20 $. I had to settle for the cheapest one (at 16 $!), a Dolcetto d'Aba that was mediocre (too much acidity). Overall, we were not really impressed by this experience."

The Ivy Inn restaurant features locally-inspired seasonal American cuisine. Located in an historic house built originally in late 1700"s. Conveniently located about a mile west of the University of Virginia. Small family business that loves to support our incredible local farmers.

"The setting is very cozy and intimate. It gives the guests a warm feeling. The food is quite good. I had the duck breast and it was both well cooked and nicely garnished. The Profiterolles for dessert were excellent. Only drawback: the service that is too slow although attentive and personal. The wines by the glass could also be a bit more generous."
