Moro's Dining Restaurant Review: An out-of-the-way gem with a solid Italian-American menu of veal, beef and pasta dishes, Tom Moro's restaurant is tucked into a modest strip-mall near Metro Airport. Dinners come complete with a classic tossed salad, minestrone or soup of the day, vegetable and potato. Portions are large. Tableside cooking adds flair to the mirrored room, which is usually packed with diners who know they can depend on the reliably tasty fare. We recommend the shrimp sautéed in butter with scallions, mushrooms, green peppers and a bit of tomato sauce; it's then flambéed with brandy and Madeira wine. And who could resist vintage desserts, such as cherries jubilee, bananas Foster or the Macedonian, a combination of cherries, bananas and peaches set alight with brandy, rum, curaçao and Galliano atop French vanilla ice cream?
