Tysons Corner is known primarily for three things: its massive pair of malls, the large number of companies headquartered there, and the resulting terrible traffic that results from all of these things colliding at once.

In recent months, restaurant options have been improving, most dramatically with the addition of the Taste of Urbanspace food hall in Tysons Galleria. Here are the essential places to eat around Tysons Corner.

This new food hall of sorts replaced the now-shuttered Isabella Eatery.

The standout vendors are Sen Khao, serving Lao food from Thip Khao’s Seng Luangrath, and Donburi, the third outpost for the local Japanese rice bowl chain. A new pop-up features Laotian sandwiches. —Missy Frederick

Vienna, VA 22182
(703) 442-7888

The sushi here is average, but the ramen is worth the trek to this bustling restaurant off of Leesburg Pike (warning: the small parking lot fills up fast). Shio ramen is complex and savory, and there are plenty of toppings for customizing individual bowls. The menu also features a selection of Japanese appetizers and a handful of entrees such as tonkatsu, or fried pork cutlets. —M.F.

Nostos is an underrated destination for contemporary Greek food. There’s a deep lineup of cheese dishes — think pan-fried, sesame-crusted feta served with honey and almonds. Seafood is a speciality, and meze are plentiful. —M.F.
