Jay and I love food and I especially love vino. We eat out at least a couple of time a week. Because of our love for grubs, I’ve put together a slideshow of good eats from some of our fav foods from the area restaurants.
We had NYE dinner at one of Tysons Corner’s hot spots, ecitie Restaurant & Bar. We also enjoyed dining at Matchbox in Chinatown, DC. We love, Love sushi so when we’re in the mode for some awesome and freshly rolled rolls, we head to Yirasai Japanese Cuisine in Vienna. And for low-key, low budget and healthy eats, we prefer Chipotle or Noodles & Company in Vienna, VA.
