Sunday Brunch Buffets in Nothern VA

Ireland's Four Provinces in Falls Church has a great Sunday brunch buffet.

Chicken and Waffles in DC

I was at Founding Farmer's on Pennsylvania Avenue a couple of weeks ago and noticed that they had chicken and waffles on the menu. We didn't order it but the couple at the next table did. It looked really good, but I cannot give any first hand impressions of how it tasted.

Pierogies in NoVA?

Thanks a lot!

Pierogies in NoVA?

Are there any restaurants in Northern Virginia that serve Polish food, specifically pierogies?

Lamb Kapama

Thanks a lot. I appreciate the tip.

Alone in the area [Fairfax, VA]

For Italian you could try Esposito's at 9917 Lee Hwy in Fairfax. It's kind of a generic looking place, but the food is good and the prices are reasonable.

Any Filipino places left?

I'm pretty sure that Karaoke Idol is still open.

Lamb Kapama

Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Northern Virginia that serves a good lamb kapama? Believe it or not, Anthony's in Falls Church, which is a family-style pizza place serves an excellent lamb kapama but it's not a regular menu item. You just have to get lucky and show up when it's one of the daily specials. Is there a restaurant around here that has it on the regular menu?

Sunday brunch in Old Town

Thanks a lot. I appreciate the recommendation.

Cubano Sandwich in DC NoVA Area?

I actually had a very good Cuban sandwich at the Blue Iguana in Fairlakes. It was better than the one you can get at the Caribbean Grill in Arlington.

Visiting Pittsburgh on 10/2 and would like recommendation

I'll be in Pittsburgh this coming weekend, 10/2-10/3, for the Steelers game and would be interested a recommendation for a restaurant that provides uniquely Pittsburgh fare. Pierogies, for example, are known as a Pittsburgh dish. I'm open to any suggestion and nearly any type of food. I just want to get something that I might not be able to get quite so easily at home in Virginia. Thanks!

Best Burger in DC area

I haven't been there for quite some time, and I understand it's under new management, but they used to have really good burgers at the Sign of the Whale in Falls Church (Loehman's Plaza).


This restaurant has probably been discussed before, but I just noticed the other day that a Chutzpah! has opened up at Tysons Corner, across Leesburg Pike from the mall. To those of you who've eaten at other locations, what are/were your impressions of the place?

Baguette Republic, Falls Church City

Baguette Republic is west of Z Pizza, not east of it.

Lazy Sundae is gone from Arlington . . .

The new Lazy Sundae is right next to the 7-11 on N. West Street in Falls Church. It's on N. West Street about 50 yards north of the intersection with W. Broad Street, directly across from First Union Bank.
