Restaurants where the food is clearly the passion of the kitchen and the waitstaff

Thank you so much for your suggestions. We will definitely try Restaurant Eve, Blacksalt and Komi and hope to get to CD Cafe when we are down near Solomon's. Maybe we can get to Bowie, too. Boy, I am abit shocked that there aren't many more to choose from. My question was spurred by two great eatng experiences while in Phoenix last month (Tarbell's and Fontinelli's). It made my husband and I realize what we were missing here even with all the restaurant choices in the area.

Restaurants where the food is clearly the passion of the kitchen and the waitstaff

I'm looking for restaurants in the DC area where it is clear from the moment you sit down that the chef is passionate about what he/she creates and the waitstaff love sharing that passion. It can be 5 stars or a mom and pop storefront. I'm just interested in eating food that I can tell someone really cared about when they prepared it. Suggestions?

Place to meet for drinks in the Springfield, VA area

Any suggestions for a place to meet friends for drinks in the Springfield area? I'm hoping for a place that is quiet enough that we can hear ourselves talk.
