While in VA this weekend to see Testament (old school metal) at Jaxx in Springfield. We stumbled upon a cool place in Arlington, VA called The Boulevard Woodgrill. Small, but top shelf beer list including numerous Belgians and local micros. Most of the food is done on wood planks. The full rack of ribs I ordered were outstanding.
Have a few Deliriums (Belgian) and hit some of the other bars in the area. Everything is within easy walking distance. Many have outdoor patios.
