Best Restaurants 2012

Best Restaurants cover

To understand the restaurant landscape in a region as diverse as Northern Virginia is to appreciate the beauty of dichotomy.

Dinner in farm country possesses all the sophistication as a meal inside the Beltway and a restaurant in Arlington deliberately creates a farmhouse aesthetic.

Wherever the highway unfolds, food rules.

Restaurants on this list put forth dishes that are, of course, wonderful and in line with the tenets of modern dining: seasonal and ingredient-focused.

Value and atmosphere also contributed to rank. But it still came down to the food.

Here’s our list for the most worthy meals in NoVA.
