Nestled between the city of Fairfax and Falls Church, this pocket of Fairfax County has been steadily attracting more restaurants, particularly after the Mosaic District complex opened in 2012.
This map highlights the most essential choices in the neighborhood (which stretches into the area known as Dunn Loring), ranging from family-friendly Vietnamese and bistro-style French to gourmet pizza and local beer.
The Mosaic District development continues to evolve: Recent additions to the offerings there also include Cuban cafe Colada Shop, Mexican restaurant Urbano 116, Poffy for fried pancake creations, and Gyu Shige for Japanese barbecue (a branch of Pupatella pizza is on the way). Head to the farmers market on Sundays (Thursdays in warmer months as well) for even more delicious vendors.
