made a last minute decision to zing up to your area to visit an aunt in Springfield VA for the weekend. my aunt thinks i've eaten all around the country and have sniffed out the best spots to go to, so i'm sure she's going to ask ME where to go for dinner. problem is, i really only have solid eating strategies for a handful of cities, and DC and surrounding area is not one of them.
we won't be limited to any ethnicity. looking at nothing more than a moderate price range (ie. max $30 entree), and a relatively easy commute from Springfield. my personal preference would be for a place that highlights local ingredients/fare, but not restricted to that.
please help me pull this off!
