February 29, 2016 / editor

When you hear the phrase, “the best restaurants in the DMV…” many people immediately think of DC as having best restaurants in the area. However, Virginia has been making a splash in the food scene and luckily for us here at The Parker, we do not have to venture to the DC to experience a top notch restaurant! Head out your door and enjoy two of the area’s very best restaurants, according to The Washingtonian, right near The Parker.

Hank’s Oyster Bar

If you are craving seafood and looking to feel as though you’ve been transported to the coasts of New England, you have got to head over to Hank’s Oyster Bar. Located a few miles from us at The Parker, Hank’s Oyster Bar is in a prime location in Old Town Alexandria. Besides the food, you will understand why it has been ranked as one of the top 100 restaurants in the area with its friendly and professional staff. While you are there start your meal with their famous raw oysters (which are $1.25 during happy hour). Make sure you also try their Old Bay peel n’ eat shrimp, lobster roll and even their mac and cheesy. What makes Hank’s Oyster Bar even better is that their staff is polite and efficient, they have a great weekend brunch and the raw bar is half off every night from 10pm-midnight, you can’t beat that in the DMV!

Restaurant Eve

Are you looking for a place to eat that changes their menu daily to ensure the freshest ingredients are served? If so, Restaurant Eve is the place for you. Coming in at #50 on the Washingtonian Best Restaurant list, this Old Town Alexandria restaurant will leave you satisfied and wanting to go back again and again. The menu is a beautiful marriage of different flavors that showcase local produce and meats for an unforgettable experience. Another great feature to Restaurant Eve’s menu is their chef’s tasting menu or their Irishman’s Filipino tasting menu that is Asian inspired and served family style. With its unique blend of flavors and its exceptional and attentive servers, you’ll understand why it is one of the area’s best restaurants.
