Located in the heart of Old Town in the historic Crilley Warehouse, OVERWOOD is a wood-fired American kitchen and bar featuring modern interpretations of traditional classics. As the name implies, our kitchen is built around hardwood-fueled cooking (grill, oven & smoker) and we will use only the freshest and finest ingredients in every dish.

The North Shore Grill is a sophisticated casual restaurant located on the North End of Conesus Lake. <br /><br />We serve premium steaks, chops and seafood prepared on an Aztec Wood Fire Grill. This custom grill provides an exceptional flavor to your beef, chops and seafood not found anywhere in our region.<br /><br />When you sit at our copper top bar or in our dining room you will find an unparalleled selection of wines available. Our Martini list is also designed to satisfy.<br /><br />If sitting waterfront is your preference we have a deck, tiki bar and waterfront stage for you to enjoy with one of the best views in the Fingerlakes.

"This is an exception to my desire to frequent family owned restaurants, but one where I have no regrets. The food is very good, the staff very professional, and the ambience being in the water can't be beat."

Many restaurants in Little Italy have become destinations, among them the Busalacchi family's Trattoria Fantastica. The rustic décor features a relaxed country-style feel throughout the restaurant, including the delightful patio. The wonderfully welcoming atmosphere celebrates yet another delicious Sicilian food lineup, including pizzas and all that you would expect from an authentic Italian menu. The terrific entrées show the Sicilian influence, and fill the restaurant with great aromas.<br /><br />We would love to hear your feedback on your experience.

"You may not be served by a frenchman, but this place has been around for a very long time and has a very loyal following. This is one of the top 4 special places to dine in Northern Virginia. The waiters are pros and are helpful - not simply order takers, the food is exceptional The atmosphere is romantic and elegant."

"Okay, after booking a reservation for six, we even received a follow-up call from the restaurant confirming. When we arrived we were told they were running behind!!?? When asked how long, they said at least 30 minutes!? So with a show we had tickets for we simply left in disgust. I have heard only good things about Matchbox - the place was packed with many waiting outside in the heat. My gripe, don't bother taking reservations you can't honor!"

Vermilion features Chef William Morris' menu of Contemporary American cuisine. Complimenting Chef Morris' menu is Vermilion's wine list, named one of the top wine lists in the country by Restaurant Hospitality Magazine. Combining a charming location in Old town Alexandria with stylized design and atmosphere, Vermilion represents a bit of downtown sophistication: from the exposed brick in the upstairs dining room to the overstuffed pillows in the lounge downstairs, Vermilion holds something for all tastes.
