It’s early yet, but 2015 has already brought us crave-worthy bar bites, grandiose burgers, Korean fried chicken, and Filipino food. Not to mention sexy new places to bring those bedroom eyes and a mini-restaurant boom in Northern Virginia. Give these 13 newcomers your undivided attention:
Station Kitchen & Cocktails
This new lobby bar and restaurant inside the Embassy Row Hotel is all about bottled cocktails and bar bites like Korean caveman pops, mushroom arancini, and even pizza bagels! Much like the jingle, you can visit Station Kitchen & Cocktails anytime (in the morning, in the evening, and at supper time!). By day, Station Kitchen & Cocktails aims to be like a Starbucks that doesn’t suck -- meaning customers can kick back with a mug of Compass Coffee and their laptop. When the sun itches to set, the space transforms into a buzzy bar with a sweet patio overlooking Mass Ave. Expect to head here quite a bit, because the renovated rooftop will be deserving of your time.
