Eventide   
3165 Wilson Blvd  Arlington, VA 22201  /  (703) 276-3165

Adam Barnett (Executive Chef) Ohio native Adam Barnett took over the kitchens at Eventide after two years as a Sous Chef  at the acclaimed West End Bistro where he served under the world famous Eric Ripert. Under Chef Ripert, Adam deepened his understanding of classic French techniques while at the same time developing menus that reflected the contemporary direction of the restaurant.  Adam also spent time at the renowned Inn at Little Washington where he worked both as a pastry cook and as lead butcher.  Working in the two most disparate ends of the kitchen gave him the tools he needs to administer an entire kitchen as well  as an extremely diverse skill set. His time at the Inn also gave Adam an introduction to the tremendous amount of local  products that are available in the Washington area, and he works diligently to develop relationships with area farmers to  produce menus that truly reflect our local seasons.  Adam’s food is creative, fresh and ever changing. His inspiration comes from many sources, classic to contemporary, and  his carefully constructed plates reflect an artistry and a passion that radiates throughout the restaurant.

American Tap Room   
3101 Wilson Blvd  Arlington, VA  /  (703) 312-90803

Tap Rooms have long been part of American Culture since the 18th century. They have been synonymous with comfortable gathering places where friends and families enjoy good food, good drinks, and good times. American Tap Room continues this fine tradition and seeks to rekindle the unique vitality of its predecessors, only better. It is where old meets new; taking the best of the past traditions, combining it with a contemporary and sophisticated setting and classic grill menu.  At American Tap Room, we offer a premier, first-class dining experience including an outstanding selection of the finest food quality and service at an affordable price.

Mister Days (sports bar) offers a huge variety of American fare to accompany any event - whether its a sit-down dinner, hors d'oeuvres to go along with a get-together, or a quick bite with your favorite ballgame

Nam Viet    
1127 N Hudson St  Arlington, VA  /  (703) 522-7110

The exceptional cuisine of the Nam-Viet Restaurant was developed by applying family culinary secrets and experience in satisfying hosts of indigenous and foreign customers of every nationality in over three generations of service. French and Southern Mekong Delta flavors and exceptionally fine quality of ingredients are evident in our very own "Can-Tho-nese" style cooking. Can Tho, a lush, bountiful, bustling, tropical area of the Southernmost part of Vietnam, is frequently referred to as the "Bread Basket of Southeast Asia." The demands of its people for high energy, non-filling, non-fattening nourishment to sustain them through a tropical workday resulted in the evolution of wholesome, savory culinary dishes of unique distinction, now finding great appeal and high favor in Western diets. Whether a light, nourishing mid-day luncheon or an evening of dining elegance, we are confident you will join our ever increasing numbers of satisfied, health conscious, repeat customers.

Spider Kelly's   
3181 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA | 703-312-8888

Spider Kelly's was created by Nick Freshman and Nick Langman--lifetime area residents--as a comfortable, appealing bar and dining room that is inextricably linked to the neighborhood. It is not a chain, and Spider Kelly's is committed to becoming a lasting part of the community. The bar is open late every night--no closing on a whim for this place. Spider Kelly's strives to provide its guests with a relaxed and casual atmosphere that serves as a backdrop for excellent food. The menu is easy and approachable, yet the ingredients are high quality and the preparation is meticulous.  After an exciting first year, we decided to get the economy going again (somebody has to!), so we have nearly quadrupled our size! We now have a new bar, multiple lounge areas, pool tables, shuffleboard, darts and video games. We added draft beer, we expanded the menu and did just about everything else that we could to make the new Spider Kelly's as much fun as possible. We hope you like the new space (we do!), and we trust that you will find the same great service, terrific food and easygoing atmosphere that our customers have come to expect from us.  Spider Kelly's motto is "come as you are," and the staff takes it literally. We want our guests to be comfortable whether they're in t-shirts or tuxedos. Our menu has something for every mood, and our staff is trained to make everyone feel at home.

Arlington Rooftop Bar and Grill    
2424 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA | 703-528-3030 

We were surprised when Arlington Rooftop Bar & Grill opened above Delhi Dhaba last winter: Why would anyone head to a nightspot with the word “rooftop” in the name in December, especially if the roof wouldn’t be ready until spring? But the huge outdoor space has been worth the wait. A tiny bar houses a dozen taps, a couple of TVs and two bartenders who efficiently serve the waiting crowds. (I have to give bonus points for having a rotating Dogfish Head beer on draft; this is one of the few rooftops with a halfway-decent beer selection.) The space contains a good mix of open standing room and tables and chairs.  The scene: Walk though the glass front doors and take the unmarked stairwell one flight up to the bar room, where two-story high, floor-to-ceiling windows look out over Wilson Boulevard. A richly carved 40-foot-long bar adds a curious sense of grandeur to the room, which otherwise is dominated by dozens of TVs facing every angle. The combination of the orange-and-brown color scheme, columns covered with mosaic tiles and large semi-circular booths feels somewhat chaotic, especially when loud music plays through the speakers after dinner. Upstairs, the secluded mezzanine dining room has its own fireplace.
