THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Inox Restaurant Review

: A welcome oasis in the Tysons Corner traffic jam, Inox offers guests a selection of dining areas, a well-stocked wine cellar or two, and a menu that is both cutting edge and comfort food wrapped into such fare as butter-poached Maine lobsters, pan-seared sweetbreads, and house-cured pork belly and tenderloin. Whenever possible, chefs-owners Jon Mathieson and Jonathan Krinn, both formerly with Virginia’s 2941 Restaurant, source their products locally and make a great point of sticking to seasonal specialties as the weather dictates. Indeed, patrons will rejoice that Krinn’s father is still the bread baker of the bunch, and that assures you of unusual fresh samples from the baker’s oven. Patrons will also be pleased to find that former executive chef John Wabeck now oversees the restaurant’s wine cellars, and he has established his reputation on having a keen palate. Besides the food, the restaurant’s spectacular high-tech décor is another big plus: it’s all about glamour and sophistication without being pretentious and by retaining an air of casual civility. Businessmen may find that Inox is ideal for meetings or important discussions, but ladies who shop at Saks and Neiman-Marcus, as well as all others, will appreciate both the food and décor.
