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.

"My husband & I had been wanting to go to Vermillion since moving to Alexandria; it's a friend's favorite OT restaurant. We usually just decide to go out at the spur of the moment, so we had a hard time getting into Vermillion, because it is often booked well in advance. When I saw that it was on the list of Restaurant Week restaurants, I went ahead and booked it! It did not disappoint. I'm gluten intolerant, so the limited menu for Restaurant Week is even more limited for me. I chose the chilled corn and crab soup (yum), the risotto and the PB&J dessert (they had to alter it slightly) - also delicious, as long as you like peanut butter! The risotto was a little bland, but still good enough that I wished for more! Server was terrific."

From the talents behind Proof, Estadio recently debuted on trendy 14th St NW, above Logan Circle. According to blog.zagat.com 'offering contemporary takes on regional classics in pintxos, tapas and entree-sized portions, along with sandwiches on housemade bread, all washed down by Iberian wines (many under $10 a glass) and frozen alcoholic slushies; the über-stylish setting incorporates decorative wrought iron, reclaimed timber, colorful tiles and themed murals, with seating at a large concrete bar, a marble counter facing the open kitchen and window-side tables perfect for scoping the vibrant street scene.'

"This is my second time at Estadio. I've really enjoyed both meals. Fresh, interesting take on traditional Spanish dishes. Great sangria; also with a fresh twist on the traditional version. Lots and lots of gluten free options, too!"

"GREAT STEAKS..AWESOME SEAFOOD" - The Warehouse has consistently been highly rated by the nationally known "Zagats Dining Guide" and is one of the most popular restaurants in Old Town. Specialties include their famous All-Lump crab cakes, Lobster Linguine Pasta and their huge 20 oz Grilled T-Bone Steak. Their Sunday Brunch is a "must do" in Old Town and reservations are recommended for this popular meal.

"We've been to the Warehouse on many occasions and we always leave pleased. They've got a good balanced menu with lots of options as far as meat vs seafood. Our most recent visit was on a Wednesday evening and the place was pretty much packed. That alone should tell you that the food is good. I am gluten intolerant, but before I found that out, I always had the she-crab soup...delicious!"
