The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm Tops This Year's NoVa Mag 50 Best List

This year's list features plenty of newcomers.

via Northern Virginia magazine

Northern Virginia Magazine posted its 50 Best Restaurants issue online, and the top 10 list had some shake-ups from last year. Here's who made the top 10 this time around:

10. Green Pig Bistro

9. Brabo

8. The Ashby Inn & Restaurant

7. Maple Ave Restaurant

6. Trummer's on Main

5. Market Table Bistro

4. Mokomandy

3. 2941

2. Vermilion

1. The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm

Maple Avenue, ranked number one last year, dropped to the number seven spot this year. And The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm nabbed the number one spot after taking number two last year. The magazine lauds The Restaurant, writing that their "parade of dishes, both clever and satisfying, turns into a dinner you’ll think about all year."

Market Table Bistro, Brabo and Trummer's on Main are new to the top ten for 2014. And here's a list of what's new on the Best 50 list that wasn't featured last year:

America Eats Tavern

Bangkok Golden

Copperwood Tavern

Don Lencho

Elephant Jumps

Grandale Restaurant

Gypsy Soul

Harrimans Virginia Piedmont Grill

Maaza 29

Ray’s The Steaks

TRIO Grill

Villa Mozart

Water & Wall

WK Hearth

Here are the restaurants that were featured on last year's list, but dropped out of the top 50:

Bistro Bethem

Bistro L'Hermitage



La Rosetta

The Majestic

Mala Tang


Manor House


Ray's 3



Walker's Grille
