Nothing in Reston on ‘Top 50’ NoVa Restaurants List

Northern Virginia Magazine's 50 Best RestaurantsNorthern Virginia Magazine’s 50 Best Restaurants in Northern Virginia list is out — and not one Reston restaurant is on it.

While Reston, particularly Reston Town Center, is a hub for food and drink in this part of Fairfax County, apparently it’s not the spot with the best food and drink.

To be fair, Northern Virginia covers a large area, with picks from Arlington’s Liberty Tavern to Loudoun’s farm-to-table The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm making the cut.

There are fine dining stalwarts like Trummer’s on Main, 2941, L’Auberge Chez Francois and The Ashby Inn on the list. There are quirky locally owned places too, like Vienna’s Maple Avenue Restaurant and Pazzo Pomodoro mentioned.

Reston, however, comes up empty. No Passionfish. No Ariake. Nothing at Reston Town Center.

Do you think that is an oversight or a correct assessment? Do you have a Reston spot that should be among the top 50? Tell us in the comments.
