Great food in Old Town Alexandria

Made a return trip to Virtue Feed & Grain on Union Street in Old Town Alexandria. Still haven’t ordered off the dinner menu because the pub grub is too interesting! This is now my favorite place to hang out early for unique eats. We sampled a dangerous cocktail that tasted like nothing more than ginger beer, but was going down way too easy to be safe. Loved it! The chef loves to fry and he does it well. Baskets of fried calamari and mushrooms are plentiful and well done. The crubeen is a fried lump of pork hock goodness that should not be missed. The ox tongue salad with a light vinaigrette, red onions and rocket greens was loaded with tender tongue worthy of the best New York deli. Soooo good! Oysters on the half shell were large and fresh. The bar staff is friendly and efficient, and food comes out of the kitchen quickly. The one misstep so far is the sad cheese plate…but that’s what you get when you order a cheese plate in a gastropub!? I am looking forward to my next adventure here…and hopefully the specials will last longer than 6:30 pm!

  1. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this blog was fantastic. I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 I suggest you add new articles related with “skin” maybe could be a good idea but don’t worry you have a wonderful blog my bro. Cheers!
