I've had lunch here a few times with coworkers since I work nearby. There is one gentleman who works there as a host and server who is not very friendly or polite at all, especially toward the female gender, I've noticed. However, the food is really good and the ambience wonderful, so we continue to go and booked a large group for a going away lunch for one of our colleagues yesterday as well. We had a very friendly, nice server, so that was an extra pleasant surprise! More

The food was excellent for lunch. My Salade Niciose with seared tuna was cooked perfectly: raw in the middle and seared with a peppery crust around the edges. My brother had the special brisket sandwich with sweet potato frites and 3 dipping sauces. However, the brisket was way overpriced at $36 for a not THAT "special" sandwich, plus server didn't mention the price when first describing it. While I would still recommend Mussel Bar and go back myself, guests should definitely ask ahead for prices of specials. More

Discover Arlington

After you've seen all the monuments, your palate deserves a whirlwind culture tour too. Arlington is a short Metro hop away from the National Mall. It's home to everything from Greek dining that draws inspiration from Spanish tapas-style plating to restaurants where you can build your own burritos. Of course, areas like the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City and Pentagon Row are the places to be if you want the full upscale experience, but you're never out of walking distance from some of the D.C. area's famous freshly-cooked Ethiopian injera or Vietnamese pho. If you're worried about overdoing it, just remember that D.C. has the nation's highest number of vegan eateries per capita and features tons of vegetarian options.
