Del Ray, Alexandria neighborhood destinations

RogInVA | May 8, 2012 08:23 PM

Okay ... so Del Ray has arguably the D.C. area's best Mexican food at Los Tios restaurant; a couple of the area's best New American places, including Evening Star; Barack Obama's favorite frozen custard joint at Dairy Godmother; a good-to-great Italian eatery at La Strada; and the best little fromagerie, wine bar, and restaurant on Mount Vernon Avenue with Cheesetique. Draw in excellent places on the fringes of Del Ray like Pizzaiola on Fern up at Fern Street; Monroe's at the intersection of Monroe Street and Commonwealth Avenue; and Chez Andree, a very intimate French place tucked in to a small strip mall on East Glebe, the newly opened Grape + Bean wine and gourmet shop on Commonwealth, and you've got a destination-class feastival right before our eyes. Comments, anybody?
