The Grill From Ipanema is the only authentic Brazilian restaurant in town. This restaurant takes pride in its hospitality and is committed to offering the best culinary experience so that one can truly taste traditional Brazilian cookery with different flavors and from different regions in Brazil. The inspiration of the menu is a reflection of the people, different cultures, and flavors within Brazil. Try our "Moqueca Mista a Baiana" style, it is a mixed seafood stew of fish, shrimp, mussels, squid, clams and scallops is prepared in a blend of palm oil and coconut milk with fresh cilantro, tomato, onion, scallions and green pepper (Please indicate how spicy) served in a clay pot with rice and fish broth, and a yucca purée on the side. Grill from Ipanema is a delightful surprise to anyone interested in a unique adventure from way down south.

"Tables are definitely well laid out; trying to squeeze too many people without thought of comfort for customers. Waiter made up for poor reception from host and hostess"

Virtue is a modern American tavern located near the Potomac River in Old Town, Alexandria. Our menu offers an array of farm-fresh food and refreshing cocktails to please your tastebuds, and a vibrant atmosphere to make for an enjoyable dining experience at any time of day! Housed in a historic feed & grain warehouse from the late 1800s, Virtue's stunning rustic modern decor is sure to impress.

Come enjoy the tropical tastes of Cuba! Authentic home style Cuban cuisine where our customers feel as though they are eating home cooked meals that would be found in Grandma's kitchen. Cuba de Ayer is an ideal escape for a delicious cup of Cuban coffee, a Cuban grilled sandwich, followed up by something sweet like a slice of tres leches cake. mmm.... Bring your friends, family or come alone-strangers are simply friends we've yet to meet.

Our Mexican and Latin foods are prepared with the freshest ingredient. Try our salads, soups or tortas, all served with chips and salsa. Our famous taco salad is served in a crispy tortilla shell filled with crisp romaine lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and beans served with cheese, pico de gallo and sour cream for only $6.95. Our tasty rotisserie chicken is marinated overnight in a delicious blend of Latin herbs and spices and then slowly cooked to perfection. Try a quarter, half or whole chicken with two or four sides. We also grill tender cuts of steak, after it is marinated overnight then slowly cooked on the grill to create our steak and two sizes or solo dish.

"Ordered a margarita which i felt was a watered down drink; sent it back and observed the bartender tasting the drink using a straw, have another employee taste it as well; bartender added liquor to the same drink and waitress was about to bring it back to me when I intervened and told them that I was not going to drink from a shared glass"
