Buzzworthy Alexandria

Alexandria's buzzing culinary scene receives rave reviews in trusted foodie magazines like Food & Wine and Bon Appetit; even the The New York Times agrees, "...the city has taken its place at the culinary table." President Obama and the First Lady celebrated their anniversary at much-talked about chef Cathal Armstrong's Restaurant Eve and Valentine's Day at Vermilion, both listed amongst the "100 Very Best Restaurants 2013" by Washingtonian magazine. Chef Armstrong's partner Todd Thrasher's cocktails have been praised by The New York Times, with GQ magazine naming his swank speakeasy PX Lounge one of "The 25 Best Cocktail Bars in America." Critics have taken notice of Del Ray's delectable spins on beloved classics: Food & Wine included Cheesetique's "Mac n' Cheesetique" amongst the best in the US and Travel + Leisure ranked Artfully Chocolate's "Divas" on the list of "America's Best Hot Chocolate," while Fodor's Travel claims the chocolate shop-cum-art gallery is one of the "15 Best Places to Drink Hot Chocolate in America."
