To understand the restaurant landscape in a region as diverse as Northern Virginia, is to appreciate the beauty of dichotomy. Dinner in farm country possesses all the sophistication as a meal inside the Beltway and a restaurant in Arlington deliberately creates a farmhouse aesthetic.
Wherever the highway unfolds, food rules.
Restaurants on this list put forth dishes that are, of course, wonderful and in line with the tenets of modern dining: seasonal and ingredient-focused. Value and atmosphere also contributed to rank. But it still came down to the food.

The Washington Redskins gave their fans plenty for which to be thankful over the past few days.
Washington went into Dallas on Thursday and defeated its rival Cowboys 38-31 in a nationally-televised, Thanksgiving Day game. It was the second straight win for the Redskins (5-6), who are still in the hunt for a playoff spot as the season winds down.
