I love dining out, especially in the summer when I can sit outside to enjoy a great meal and some wonderful people watching.
I also love trying new restaurants, so I was pretty happy when three new places opened this spring in Reston Town Center. All are great, and I’m looking forward to many wonderful evenings on the patios (or inside when it starts getting colder). Next time you’re in Reston Town Center, try one of them.
Barcelona is known for Spanish food and a long wine list– featuring, of course, lots of Spanish wine. The food is simple and filled with the flavors of olive oil, lemon, smoky paprika.
The restaurant is designed to recreate the feel and the look of an evening on the Ramblas in Barcelona. The result is sophisticated décor that evokes the world’s hippest cities such as Milan and Rio de Janeiro.
Bartaco is for those who want an upscale TexMex menu. Can you say duck tacos? How about cauliflower tacos? And, of course, you can get all of the wonderful side dishes that make TexMex so popular — chips and guacamole, plantains, rice and beans.
Bartaco is like the best food truck you can imagine placed into a hip restaurant. It’s a great place to meet friends for a drink and a bite.
Neyla is the newest addition to Reston Town Center. Although I was sad to see Paolo’s go, I am excited about having a new Mediterranean bistro in town. This is a place where “old world leisure combines with new world convenience.” The menu is filled with garden fresh vegetables, select cheeses, meats and fish prepared with an Eastern Mediterranean influence. Their dishes feature coriander, cinnamon, basil, thyme, and coffee with cardamom… yum.
Are you hungry yet? I am. Maybe I’ll see you at Reston Town Center.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
