Hi everyone! My parents have been living in Annandale for over a year now, but they still don't know the area well. They don't eat out much, and they travel a lot, so they haven't really settled into the area well in terms of finding interesting food places, etc.
So, I'd like to make a very broad and general appeal to all the excellent Northern Virginia Hounds to offer up their favorite spots out this way. I'm looking for everything from nice dinner places to diners to good brunch to even interesting grocery stores, bakeries, etc.
I know this is very broad, but I'm hoping I can get a great list of places together both for when I visit and also to help them settle in here more.
Oh, yeah, one more thing...I'd love a recommendation for a great wine shop in the area. Not necessarily looking for huge selection, but rather a knowledgeable staff and some good cheaper wines with more expensive stuff.
Thanks so much in advance!!
