My son is at GMU and we would like rec's on both good casual restaurants we can take him to in the immeditate vicinity when we're up that way, as well as some nicer (but not too over the top) places my husband and I can try after we let him return to his studying (read: partying). The last couple times we were up there we went to TT Reynolds with him, which was surprisingly decent (more a matter of very low expectations than any revelations with the food). We are just looking to branch out to places other than that and Buffalo Wing University (which makes us feel really old and serves average wings at best), and Minerva which he apparently does "one meal days" at, getting his 24 hour fill at the lunchtime buffet. We have witnessed this and, while the food was quite good, its not something we'd like to repeat with him any time soon.
I have seen a bunch of other cute little restaurants around there that look like they might be worth checking out with the hub, but we don't get up there often enough to do trial and error. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
