Evening Star Cafe
Evening Star: Gourmet Cuisine in a Casual Setting
Evening Star is a neighborhood gem located between Crystal City and Old Town that serves modern southern cuisine. Funky, eclectic decor creates a casual atmosphere for enjoying satisfying dishes like Shrimp and Grits and Roasted Duck Breast with Hazelnut Dirty Rice. The restaurant also runs two bars in the back: The Majestic and No. 9 Lounge. During warm months, there is a pop-up alfresco patio area called Front Porch where neighborhood families gather to munch on small plates and adults can sip on bourbon slushees.
