Visiting Arlington for a weekend. Where should I eat?

So I actually arrive on a Saturday morning, at Reagan. Any good brunch places to recommend? Ideally, we'd get something creative, not too greasy and not too crowded. Looking for more than eggs Benny and blue plate specials. Suggestions?

Visiting Arlington for a weekend. Where should I eat?

we will be in Arlington and will have a car. Not looking to spend a fortune, but prepared to drop good money for good food. We are both adventurous eaters and will try damn near anything. Relatively low tolerance for heavy/greasy food, generally prefer things that both taste good and feel good in the body. Not looking for a food-coma experience. No dietary restrictions. We live in the Boston/Providence area and get plenty of good seafood. Well experienced with Szechuan, Korean, Indian, Japanese, Ethiopian, French and Thai cuisines. Open to all, but would be looking for something special and NOT dumbed down for American palates. Not looking for generic experiences. We tend to prefer smaller, more intimate settings, love family run establishments. Totally comfortable being the only Americans in an establishment.

My wife is on a teaching fellowship in Arlington for the summer. I am visiting her the last weekend in June (Sat-Tues). So the question is, where do I need to go and what do I need to eat? We are both adventurous eaters and experienced gourmets. What do you recommend?

where do PVD folks go for dinner on just an "average night out?"

CAV in the jewelry district. Absolutely amazing food and incredible ambiance.

Red Stripe is good.

Abysinia on Wickenden is awesomme for Ethiopian.

Rasoi is great Indian.

Garden Grill is amazing for vegetarian.

Andrea's is great Greek.

Sun & moon is good for Korean.

Avoid New Rivers like the plague. They suck.

Honeymoon in Newport, Where Should We Eat?

Would you say fluke is better than Mooring? Also, as I said above, I had been very excited about Spiced Pear until I saw their yelp reviews.... Any thoughts?

I was excited about Spiced Pear and then read a bunch of VERY negative yelp reviews that made me nervous... They complained about both the service and the quality of food, many people saying their food was under seasoned and relatively flavourless. Thoughts?

My soon-to-be wife and I will be honeymooning in Newport, RI in March and I am looking for recommendations.
The White Horse Tavern is already on the list.
Was interested in the Spiced Pear, but after looking at yelp I'm not so sure...
And of course, I need to know where the best seafood restaurant is.
Thanks!
