After the Hike: Local Favorites

Social The food is amazing! The duck salad is to die for. I would post a pic but I ate it too fast.
Pulcinella: The Italian Host Two words: cheese pizza
Madison Deli Steak and cheese. They use Korean bulgogi as their steak, which makes it insanely good.
Wok & Roll The chicken fried rice is amazing...been coming here for years!!
1371 Beverly Rd, McLean VA — (703) 556-8811
Ichiban Sushi Great hole in the wall sushi place, the edamame is very fresh
Chesapeake Bagel Bakery Check out the photo for their hours.
Sweet Leaf Love this place. Whether it is a fresh salad or a healthy sandwich you cannot go wrong at Sweet Leaf. Today I had a Caprese sandwich with avocado.
McLean Pizza Great service! Feels like home.
1434 Center St, McLean VA — (703) 356-2700
Kazan Restaurant It was pricey and I will not go back. Food was not even close to Great Turkish quality and taste for example lamb shank ( incik) was over killed by tomato sauce they used a gallon on it.
6813 Redmond Dr, McLean VA — (703) 734-1960
El Tio Tex-Mex Grill This is our new favorite Mexican... we can walk here ♡
Miyagi White dragon is the BEST !!!
6719 Curran St, McLean VA — (703) 893-0116
Santini's New York Style Deli Sandwiches are fine but on a curve with actual NY deli sandwiches it would rate 2-3/10 only
Star Nut Gourmet I did like until the owner had "beef" w/me. Working on lap top & full intention of buying. Owner came up to me, told me that this is a business, & that I needed to buy. I will never go back.
1445 Laughlin Ave, McLean VA — (703) 749-9090
sweetgreen Great salads. Nice rotation of seasonal options. Good for a quick bite or for takeout.
House of Fortune Great lunch, great price and even better company!
6715 Lowell Ave, McLean VA — (703) 821-3779
CAVA Kids meals are great. They definitely don't skimp on the protein.
P.F. Chang's The mini desserts are the best option if you want a little sweetness after your meal! I recommend the Red Velvet, the Great Wall of Chocolate or the Strawberry Cheesecake. Delicious and only $2!
Fish Taco This place is truly a hidden gem! You must go for their namesake dish, the signature fish taco: fried local fish, cabbage + signature sauce served with rice & beans.
