And so did Clarendon Patch readers in our inaugural Best of Patch contest. Readers were asked to pick the best "distinctly Arlington" restaurant they'd choose to take family and friends from out-of-town.
The Liberty Tavern won 53 percent of the vote, pulling ahead by a substantial margin in the final days of the week-long contest.
In Ballston, readers chose Uncle Julio's Rio Grand Cafe as the best place to celebrate. In Georgetown, readers chose the Bourbon Steak at the Four Seasons as having the best cocktails. La Strada in Del Ray won the best Italian restaurant in Alexandria. And the Lazy Sundae and Mike's Deli won the best breakfast menu in Falls Church.
Congratulations to all of our winners!
