I am taking a new job in Arlington in a few weeks and wanted to get the low-down on what restaurants i should hit up. I am hopelessly unaware of my dining options. I will be staying in the Ballston Metro stop area but obviously have some mobility. So I am kindly asking for input on the following:
Must-eat joints - i assume mini-bar and jaleo are in this category. What else?
Asian - is there any decent vietnamese, for example? I am pretty much open to anything. I am currently in New York so some of the obvious ones we can forego.
Any other interesting ethnic restaurants?
BBQ - I am hoping my BBQ options will improve as i move south. true?
Anything else that i should be looking for
All help is appreciated.
