We're finally had the opportunity to try some of LoCo's newer restaurants. Here are some quick thoughts:
Callaloo Cuisine, Broadlands: Very nice Caribbean-themed restaurant. Most of the things we tried were very good. One exception: Sweet potato fries were practically tasteless, a far cry from what I got at many places in South Florida. A nice, interesting addition to the local dining scene.
Sorrento Grill, Ashburn: Mediterranean-themed. Got some wraps (grilled shrimp, lamb) and a tomato-onion salad to go. All very good; generous portions too.
American Flatbread, Broadlands: Lived up to the hype. Standout pies were the Punctuated Equilibrium (kalamata olives, goat cheese, etc) and Sun-Dried Tomato/Mushroom.
My Thai Place, Brambleton: My very favorite soup, tom kha kai, was excellent. Drunken noodles very good too. No clunkers. Yet another Thai place to add to the rotation. Cool decor too.
I'd like to know people's thoughts on these places and any others in South Riding/Brambleton/Ashburn/Broadlands that have opened recently. There seems to be a lot of new eateries in these shiny new plazas and not all of them are dull chains.
