The Front Page - VA
Good brunchIt's typical brunch fare, but prepared fresh. The scrambled eggs were so-so - not bad, but I've seen them served better at hotel breakfast buffets. The corned beef hash was outstanding though and the pancakes were very good too. The strawberries were fresh and finally, a restaurant that doesn't make a gelatinous mess of the strawberry syrup - looks like they do what I do at home - fresh strawberries, a little bit of sugar, mix and refrigerate - it's really that simple and a much better result.
The roast beef was also very good and they have one of the better horseradish sauces I've seen in the area. Overall, it was an excellent meal that won't blow you away with variety, but what they do offer is very well prepared.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Chet's salad special wasThe Chet's salad special was excellent. Everyone really liked the food that they ordered. Our waiter was "on it." We were pressed for time and he made sure that we got in and our in time for our next meeting. Excellent service.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYou will love this restaurantWe've been enjoying meals (lunch, dinner, brunch) at the Front Page for almost a decade and it rarely disappoints in any area. They will accommodate any reasonable request including the transformation of a Reuben sandwich into a vegetarian alternative. The atrium of the NSF building provides a place for larger groups. We've also used the atrium for hula hooping with the kids on a January day while the adults finished brunch. Evenings are special, too. My favorite dish is the Peppercorn Tuna. If you are a Washington Caps fan, you can sometimes spot players at the Front Page after practice at the Kettler Iceplex across the street. Game nights are noisy in the bar area, but the dining area is still nice. The Key Lime pie is outstanding.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
