Where to Eat and Drink in Seven Corners
Dim sum, old-school Italian and other cheap eats make this section of Falls Church well worth an outing.
Virginia beers on tap, classic rock on the stereo and plenty of room for regulars make this bar and restaurant as welcoming on a Tuesday afternoon as it is late on a Friday night. Dine in the small front dining room or on the back patio if you’d like a quieter place to chow on crisp crab fritters, sausage-stuffed Portobello mushrooms or a hearty fried-cod sandwich with your draft. Angus burgers are $5 on Tuesdays and select whiskeys are $5 on Whiskey Wednesdays.

This bustling restaurant and bar — an offshoot of the Delaware-based brewery — boasts an ever-changing list of craft beers on tap and in bottles, as well as growlers to go. The convenient location in the Seven Corners Shopping Center means there is always somewhere to park, even during peak weekend hours, but you may want to call ahead to check the wait. The sizable menu includes everything from kid-friendly grilled cheese and pizzas to grilled salmon salads and pulled-pork macaroni and cheese. This outpost of the chainlet also regularly hosts fundraisers to support area elementary schools as part of its Helping Hand program.

This vegetarian/vegan Pan-Asian restaurant is a haven for non-meat-eaters. The menu includes fish-free sushi, as well as rice and noodle dishes including udon and jinenjo soba, buckwheat noodles with Japanese wild yam. Vegi-ham, soy protein, vegi-chicken, seitan and yuba do stand-in duty for meat in many dishes, but the stars of the menu are pure vegetarian creations, including daikon cakes, vegetarian spring rolls and the “Eggplant Lover”—battered eggplant stuffed with cheese, sundried tomato and pesto.
