New Eateries at Quarry Lake

A few new places have openned recently at Quarry Lake......Ciao ( Italian) California Tortilla, and Boardwalk Burgers & Fries......I thought I'd give you my take on 2 that I've tried....

Went to Ciao last week for lunch. Was pleasantly surprised ! The kind of place I'd expect to find in the Washington suburbs. Casual Italian, table service ( which was actually very good) and an interesting menu. I had risotto with tenderloin tips, asparagus and carmelized onions for $8.99...which I thought was very reasonable. They have a very interesting menu.....more than subs and pizza. It was also very comfortable...very contemporary design.

Today we tried Boardwalk Burgers & Fries...which seems to be a company trying to "re-invent" themselves bu copying the Five Guys concept....right down to the free peanuts.
I'm a big fan of Five Guys...thought Boardwalk's food came up a tad short . I didn't think the portions ( especially the fries) were as generous as Five Guys. I also think the place is way too big ( I've heard the rent at Quarry Lake is ridiculous! )

An other Hounds want to comment???
