Things I've enjoyed lately:
|River Bend Bistro|
The River Bend Bistro where I can always go and get a "snack" consisting of their cheese plate and a glass of champagne or wine. They actually have decent champagne by the glass. The cheese plate always comes with something delicious like a plum chutney (alas, they haven't had that for months) or a quince paste (yummy!). The staff is attentive and in the background. I love this place!

703-347-7545Close to home: Pasha's, my neighborhood "bistro" that is in a strip mall close to a 7-11, but the surrounding belie the delicious food that can be found there. My favorite is the grilled salmon salad with mango chutney and I like it so much that it's hard for me not to order it every time I go there. The limoncello cake and the tiramisu cake are desserts to die for!
You can also take out.

I'm looking forward to a winery visit soon.
