Vermilion offers deceptively simple modern American cooking in the heart of Old Town, Alexandria. From Chef William Morris' regional cuisine using local, farm-raised products whenever possible to the warmth of its ambiance and the gracious hospitality its staff brings to the table, Vermilion serves as an ideal location for a casual weekday dinner, a special occasion destination or simply a great gathering place for drinks.

"The Pollo alla Milanese and the swordfish were both outstanding. My lunch companion and I had not seen each other for several months enjoyed a leisurely lunch, and were never hurried."

"The shrimp scampi and the salmon were both outstanding. Maysym provided superb service with just the right amount of attentiveness, and was very patient while we made our selections. We enjoyed an outstanding lunch!"

Our menus: www.thebluepoint.com.<br /><br />A fresh approach to regional, coastal cuisine & southern hospitality alongside spectacular views of the Currituck Sound. <br />Inspired dinner & lunch menus served in a warm and inviting atmosphere by a professional and natural staff. Exceptional and friendly Wine Menu + Full Bar.<br /> <br />There are very limited reservations for groups larger than 6. In season, we do not accept reservations for groups larger than 12, and we do not split larger groups to get around this rule. Reservations can be made to have dinner at the bar. <br />We do have some seating available on a first come - first served basis so it is always worth checking to see if you can get a table. In season we have a large outdoor bar area on the sound where you can enjoy a cocktail while you wait.<br /><br />No better place for good food, good wine, good friends and spectacular sunsets.<br />

"Our party of 8 enjoyed an incredible dinner - the catfish, crab cakes, mahi mahi, and short ribs were fabulous, as were the desserts including a memorable sticky toffee pudding and of course the pecan pie. And we love Bruce - he was perfectly attentive as always, friendly and engaging, and took care of every special request (which can be numerous when teenagers are involved). He is awesome!"

Directly across from the Verizon Center, Rosa Mexicano has been serving classic Mexican cuisine for over 20 years. Try the famous guacamole, prepared tableside, & sip a frozen pomegranate margarita while enjoying the festive, stylish and comfortable ambiance.

"The fired green tomatoes got the meal off to a fabulous start. Both the fried chicken and the shrimp and grits were outstanding, as was the pecan pie which my friend and I shared for dessert. Rameses provided superb service, and was very patient with our taking time to make our meal selections."

"First of all, many thanks to Brian - even though my wife and I were running late for our reservation and had theatre tickets, he paced our orders superbly, provided impeccable service, and we enjoyed a fabulous dinner without being rushed. The brussel sprouts are quite possibly the best we have ever had, and the Kobe sliders, fish and chips roll, and salmon were all outstanding. Portions are sized perfectly. Thanks for a fabulous dinner!"

Boss Shepherd’s is Penn Quarter’s hottest farm-to-table restaurant, where guests can enjoy a fresh approach to traditional American cuisine. Named after DC’s original governor, who was often referred to as the Father of Modern Washington, Boss Shepherd was one of the most powerful city bosses in his day and was responsible for creating DC’s infrastructure, ultimately convincing Congress to continue to operate in the District of Columbia. A statue of Boss Shepherd reigns half a block away, in front of the John A. Wilson Building.<br /><br />Instilled with Chef Jeremy Waybright’s southern inspiration, the menu boasts fresh takes on time-honored, rustic classics that can please the palate of any guest. Chef Waybright’s use of farm-to-table ingredients is evident in innovative starters such as the Maine blue mussels with sausage, cider beer, vermouth and pickled chili, or delectable bone marrow served with herbs, pickled egg, breakfast radish and toast.
