    There is another that is even better and more confusing, next time I go by there I will take a picture and post. Guaranteed to bring a smile and laugh to anyone who views it.

  6. Cuban Sandwiches

    Excellent Cuban Sandwich Locally - with 2 DC area locations, try Colada - in Sterling - and off T Street in Downtown DC. Having lived in Fort Lauderdale/Miami for many years and frequented Little Havana for Cuban sandwiches. This place saves you the airfare, but the Sterling skyline pales in comparison to Miami's waterfront and beach area. COLADA SHOP CUBAN Ham, Slow Roasted Pork, Swiss Cheese, Mustard, pickles and cilantro aioli, Cuban bread. Great place to sit outside and grab a Cafe con Leche or Cuban Coffee - very nice outdoor seating area, and ample parking.

  8. Bánh Mì

    Also - try Chase the Submarine in Vienna - not your traditional Banh Mi, but a good twist on it: belly banh mi – virginia ham, braised pork belly, daikon and carrots, cilantro, jalapeno oil, banh mi Chase the Banh Mi
  9. Happened upon the newest food, grocery, condo block or two in Sterling, Virginia recently - had been to the CAVA there several times, but missed this place as it was not open. Lunch was not particularly busy but the way this complex is set up a block off Leesburg Pike (Route 7) it is a destination. There is a Harris Teeter and several other restaurants (Chuy's) in the immediate area. I saw signs for a Coal fired pizza coming soon as well. Miller's Ale House is tucked in the middle so if you blink you could miss it. There is green space in front with some kids games and benches so it appears to be used regularly. Lunch was great. Have a decent mix of salads and sandwiches, I opted for a burger as their description sounded pretty good and it was. Service was spot on and drinks refilled promptly. Atmosphere is more of the contemporary bar/restaurant feel with high exposed vents and gray ceiling acoustic tiles. The booths and bar area were nicely spaced and they had plenty of seating. I am sure the place will fill up and get busier as the condos there sell and the immediate population increases. They have outdoor seating as well, but due to the heat, I think everyone preferred the AC. After you enjoy a meal there walk out the front door directly across the courtyard to Colada Shop for a great coffee. Heard their Cuban sandwiches are great, but have not been back to try one yet. Anyplace that has Cafe con Leche and Cuban coffee is worth a stop.
  10. Instigated by convenience, ate there again last night with friends - service faltered a little as our server was training a new employee, but everyone's dinners from pizzas to jumbo lump crabmeat and avocado salad to Gyro platter were great and delivered without issue. Their featured specials which include apps/salads/entrees always look enticing and so far I have been 2 for 2 with the entree specials. Friends commented how they were impressed with the food - for a low-key meal on a Monday evening, they were reasonably busy.
  11. Situated on Lake Anne in Reston, Kalypso's Sports Tavern, with expansive outdoor seating across from the dock area and water. Plaza is dated due to the concrete theme of 1970s construction, but there are several recent additions to the area which all appear to be fairing well. Had not been here in some time but found ourselves there Sunday and decided to give it another shot. Outdoor seating area was nice, umbrellas are a little worn and could use a cleaning, but the open-air area was nice. They have improved their ordering system so it is automated and very efficient. From Humus appetizer to dinner salads, entrees and kids meals, everything was fresh, and nicely prepared. Service was efficient, and food came out quickly and hot. Lucky for us they had live music Saturday evening starting at 5:30 PM, which was great for atmosphere. Place was decently busy and when we departed around 7, there were people waiting to be seated.

  15. Dining in Tysons Corner

    Don't forget Greek (great lunch, if you do not have a reservation eat in the bar - Nostos Thai - Busara - decent, been there a long time and does solid business. Pizza - Crust Harth (McLean Hilton) - yea, I know a hotel restaurant, but it is locally-sourced, bee-hive on the roof kind of place. You can get in/out in 60 minutes. Lost Dog - says McLean, but it is 1/2 mile from Tysons just off Rt 123. Not as good as the original Arlington location, but decent subs and individual, unique pizzas. Alborz - another kabob place, I heard is very good, however I have not been here yet - but it is across the alley from Crust pizza noted above. Chef Geoff's - menu is always interesting, and changes seasonally. --- Clarity (dcs)
