<br /><br /><br /><br />Reserve 2216 serves fine Southern cuisine with unexpected twists. The constantly evolving menu is the creation of Del Ray native Chef Eric Reid. HE and GM Darrell Bernard want you to feel like part of the family when you join them in the transformed space upstairs from Mt. Vernon Ave. mainstay DRP. Reserve 2216 is a cozy neighborhood bistro with six tables including a communal table plus an intimate, upscale bar. We regret that due to our small size and high demand, large parties and specific table requests cannot always be accommodated but don't let that stop you form having an amazing dining experience.<br /><br /><br />

"We like to check out new restaurants in the Arlington/Alexandria area, and Reserve2216 did not disappoint. It's a small restaurant, so we were lucky to get a reservation for a Friday evening with only a day's advance notice. Our dining companions grew up in the South and welcomed the opportunity to enjoy the restaurant's southern cuisine. They enjoyed their meals, as did we "Yankees." My husband reports that his pork chop was "cooked to perfection." Our friends enjoyed their meals: fried chicken, and blackened grouper, and I liked my blackened grouper. I started with the Brussels sprouts and they were quite delicious. We will definitely return to Reserve2216. It's one of the stand-out restaurants in Del Ray."

"This was our third time at the restaurant. We like TRIO Grill because the food is good, the service is good, and we can speak across the table without yelling. The wine list is so-so, but the drink menu is fairly comprehensive. All the entrees we had were very good. We weren't rushed and were able to linger after dinner. And there was free valet parking, which was great on a cold winter's night! We'll be returning to TRIO Grill."

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.

A classic American gathering place, the District Chophouse & Brewery is conveniently located 1/2 block South of The Verizon Center. We pride ourselves in serving the city's finest handcrafted beers and succulent steaks, mouthwatering chops, tasty seafood, and over-sized salads. Once you've eaten here, you'll agree the 'DC' stands for District Chophouse.

"We ate here before going to Wooly Mammoth. Very convenient; less than 2 blocks from the theater. Only problem is that the restaurant was very crowded, even at 6pm on a Saturday. Lots of tourists. That said, the service was very good and the meal was excellent (I had filet mignon). Best part of the meal: the cornbread served inside of sliced bread! Will definitely go again, but might try to find an evening when the Wizards aren't playing."
