Old Town Alexandria Restaurants

Restaurants in Old Town Alexandria offer unforgettable meals in a beautifully historic and walkable setting. With the combination of a polished atmosphere, exquisite ingredients and personal service, our restaurants leave diners in awe after every meal. Named one of the "Very Best Restaurants in Virginia" in 2013 by Washingtonian magazine, Vermilion takes simple farm-fresh food to exemplary new heights as local musicians strum their instruments in the background on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. At Virtue Feed & Grain, guests sit amidst rustic yet elegant decor in this converted warehouse, dining on mouth-watering Pepperjack Mac (mac n' cheese with a crispy pancetta topping).
