Word on the Street

Living in the metro area,it so often happens that we yuppies rarely venture off course to explore areas not immediately accessible by Metro or via a cheap taxi fare. (With ratings such as this, one might wonder why we ever would). When we do venture outside of our "zone", however, we are often rewarded. Just a short drive from the Ballston-Rosslyn corridor, Lee Highway (Route 29) offers a plethora of reliable and distinctive dining options. In fact, this family friendly area provides a nice escape option for my husband and I on regular occasions.

Italian Store, Metro 29 Diner (in fact, I just enjoyed half of last night's heaping open-faced sandwich for lunch today), Artisan Confections, as well as Sushi Zen, Taqueria el Poblano, and Pie Tanza, all in the Lee-Harrison Shopping Center are all great options. Feel free to name others, I may have missed one...Cowboy Cafe is also good, though more of a bar than a restaurant. Still on my list are Portabello and Thirsty Bernie's (though I have to question this Washingtonian piece citing its location as Clarendon)...cannot wait to add more favorites.
