Located in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, between Old Town and Crystal City, the Evening Star Cafe is known for exceptional food, friendly but professional service and an inviting 'retro chic and funky' atmosphere. Both a classic neighborhood restaurant and a destination for diners throughout the Washington Metropolitan area, the Evening Star features sophisticated and eclectic American food, one of the region's most appealing and best-priced wine lists, and two separate lounges.

"Enjoyed the small booth and menu choices. Server was kind and did not rush our catch-up session. I was relieved to find a parking spot in the back as well. It was a shame that so many people ignored the request to use the side door as the entrance, so one complaint was the bursts of cold air as we were eating. Overall, I highly recommend this neighborhood gem."

Located in the Shaw area of D.C., Marvin serves American comfort food and a few soup-inspired dishes (shrimp and grits), and is named in homage to Marvin Gaye - a huge mural of Marvin is painted on a main dining room wall. The restaurant decor gives some of the feel of a traditional local place, with a cool vibe as you enter the upstairs lounge.

"My only complaint is that the music volume level was too loud for brunch. It made hearing our conversation challenging."
