I recently had lunch  at Restaurant Eve in Old Town. I haven’t been there for lunch since they opened 5 or 6 years ago and this was a was truly a treat. The lounge offers a “Lickity Split Menu” for $14.95 and it includes two menu items. I had the soup of the day which was a creamy corn soup,  the Irish BLT and the birthday cake for desert.

My favorite butcher is right on Mt. Vernon Avenue. In 2007 my friend, Steve Gatward, opened “Let’s Meat on The Avenue,” an old fashioned butcher shop offering wonderful cuts of local meats, sausages and poultry.  Originally from England, Steve had been formally trained as a butcher before moving to the states in the early 90s. After a successful career in the advertising business Steve finally decided to follow his dream and open a butcher shop. Four years later its been a tremendous success and one of our most popular local businesses.  Last week we stopped by to buy some his Kobe burgers. These are truly the best burgers I’ve ever had.  Steve’s shop is located at 2403 Mt. Vernon Avenue, Alexandria.
