Good Restaurants in Vienna, Virginia

I concur with your recommendation on sub's at the Italian Gourmet Deli...they are very good.

You post reminded me of a place near the deli and pie shop...anybody been to Nizam's recently? Older posts seem to be very positive. I have yet to check it out. Worth it?

Foodie Faves in Alexandria, VA?

The Majestic is our go-to place in Old town if Eve is booked. Both places have style and serve excellent drinks.

Church St Pizza is definitely open. 115 Church St. (left end of the building)

I am glad you mentioned La Malaguena. I have always wanted to try it out (but been a little intimidated since I have no clue about Salvadoran food). What are some of the best items to order? I assume they do take out...

I have been a Vienna resident for the past 5 years. Here I what I consider the best of old town vienna (not including Tyson's).

Shushi Yoshi - special rolls are unique (rice paper wrapped!) and fresh
Sakana - does the basics very well

Thai (we have so many choices here):
Natta Thai - Tiny place, so carry-out is my usual
Born - The duck won me over
Tara Thai - Consistent good (not as great as it used to be)

Plaka Grill - The only place I have been in the US to have authentic greek "fast food" (gyros, souvlaki)

I have yet to find a good place...

Bazin's - The closest to an upscale place you will find in Vienna

Nielsen's - Roast beef and avocado...nice

Chipotle - I am a sucker for their chicken

Rose Restaurant - We have switched from Shamshiri to here

Chuch Street - Just like the pies I grew up with in upstate NY
