Restaurant Eve Restaurant Review

: Owner-executive chef Cathal Armstrong offers American cuisine at his Alexandria restaurant. In the sun-washed downstairs dining area, enjoy lunch preparations such as hand-rolled cavatelli with oysters or the soup of the day, and mains of pan-fried soft shell crabs in a mild Thai curry. Desserts are simpler but still outstanding: a slice of a delicate cheesecake is sparked with blueberry jam. Dinners may include a butter-poached Maine lobster with lemon gnocchi or Prime rib-eye of beef with potato galette. But should you select the pricier prix-fixe menu in the chef's own dining room, expect to enjoy five to nine courses of wildly imaginative fare, like crispy veal sweetbreads with a ragoƻt of green beans and oxtail. Sample some of the famous house libations, and examine the restaurant's selection of wines, too.
