Bravo for Brabo!
Oh Robert Wiedmaier, you’ve done it again. First, we fell in love with Brasserie Beck in D.C., and then, just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, we’re now head over heels for the Brabo Tasting Room in Old Town. In our past two weekend getaways to Alexandria, Virginia, we’ve dined at Brabo Tasting Room four times! This cozy little restaurant is phenomenal, from the incredibly delicious food to the delightful and hardworking staff, you’ll never leave hungry and you’ll always leave happy. Most importantly, you’ll want to return again and again. Be prepared to have a difficult time trying to make decisions here as everything on the menu is absolutely divine. The French onion soup rivals the crocks of soup we’ve had in Paris, the cheese board presents the best selection of cheeses we’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting, and the mussels, steaming hot in a pot of white wine and garlic broth, are exceptionally flavorful. Of course, you can’t feast on all of this without bread and you’ll be more than pleased with the baguettes served fresh and warm from the wood fired oven. Soaked in the leftover mussel broth, you’ll find these slices of heaven to be outrageously addicting. Luckily, the servers are more than willing to refill your bread basket on a regular basis. This is the place to take all of your friends for a great meal in a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Or for a more formal experience, check out Brabo Restaurant just next door!
