From My Menu

Chef Scott Drewno reviews OOO at Restaurant Eve
$$$$ | French/Belgian | Modern | American
Alexandria
"This dish combines an oyster, onions and osetra caviar with puff pastry. Chef Cathal Armstrong and manager Todd Thrasher really know how to cook and make proper cocktails. I love Thrasher's Sherlock Holmes."
Chef Robert Wiedmaier reviews The Walter sandwich at Society Fair
$$ | Specialty Shop | Deli/Sandwich Shop | Bakery | American
Old Town Alexandria
"This is one of my go-to favorites when I'm in the area. It has a really fun shop and menu, but The Walter is the best: smoked turkey meat, Gruyère cheese, bacon, mayo, and onions all pressed together to make the perfect panini. This is real quality stuff from chef Cathal Armstrong, but then again, what else would you expect?"
Chef Cathal Armstrong reviews Crisp pork belly, rutabaga purée, creamed cabbage at Restaurant Eve
$$$$ | French/Belgian | Modern | American
Alexandria
"New on the Bistro menu: crisp pork belly with rutabaga purée and creamed cabbage! Sink your teeth into it: menu & reservations: restauranteve.com"
