I'm looking for some really nice outdoor dining spots anywhere in the Northern Virginia area. Yes, there's lots of outdoor dining available but most of them overlook parking lots or you're crowded onto busy sidwalks. Even Shirlington has become overcrowded. My favorite place had been the outdoor patio of 2941 in Falls Church but they're not serving outdoors this summer. My other favorites are:
The Hermitage Inn in Clifton
Normandie Farms in Potomac
Ovations out at Wolftrap
Are there any other "hidden gem" out there that I've missed?
