Stardust Restaurant in Alexandria below the radar, too?

Last night, some friends and I went to the Stardust Restaurant in North Alexandria, where we all had wonderful meals! The fried calamari was tender, my filet mignon in a red wine sauce with sweetbreads (a special last night) was prepared rare, as I had requested, and everyone pretty much raved about the food and the service. Our server was excellent, the prices were moderate and the portions were more than adequate. After reading the post about Mezza 9, it does beg the question why are some good restaurants so obscure? It surprises me that after five years (and a good review by Phylis Richman), it still seems as though nobody has heard of the place! For example, I've never seen it mentioned here or in Tom Sietsema's chats. While it isn't quite Kinkeads, neither are the prices, and I find the food, prices, and service better than a lot of the chain restaurants like Clydes or McCormick and Schmicks.
