Lunch and Dinner Options near Westin Hotel in Alexandria, VA

CurryLover | Nov 1, 2013 12:33 PM

Going with hubby to a weekend CE meeting later this month in Alexandria, VA. Staying two nights at the Westin. Won't really have a car - the car will be valet parked. Need two lunch and dinner options (not overly expensive) within walking distance of the Westin. What's not to be missed in the Alexandria Old Town area?? Looking more for ethnic foods - Middle Eastern, Indian, Vietnamese, and fresh local seafood. Vermilion, The Majestic & The Grille are a little too pricey even tho their menus look fantastic. Not really interested in pizza or Italian since it is widespread here in NE Ohio. Planning to visit Balducci's & LaFromagerie. From reading several threads on Chowhound, my preliminary list is:

Red Rocks
Nando's Periperi
Hank's Oyster Bar
Hard Times Cafe
Pita House

Anyone have any other suggestions for fun places not to be missed?? Thanks!
