FDP: Good restaurants near the Fair Lakes Hyatt

This is the first time that the FDP meeting has been held in this part of the world. I live quite close to this location, so I thought a quick list of good local restaurants may be useful! So here it is, in order of approximate distance from the Hyatt, with links to Yelp where available.

  • Coastal Flats, Fairfax Corner (great seafood and wonderful barbeque ribs!)
  • Cheesecake Factory, Fair Oaks Mall, Fairfax (vast quantities of grub; be prepared to wait for a table)
  • Texas de Brazil, Fair Oaks Mall, Fairfax (Brazilian steakhouse; you’d better like meat)
  • Five Guys, Fairfax Towne Center (outstanding burgers)
  • Sakoontra, Fairfax (really great Thai)
  • Angeethi (may have spelled this wrong), Herndon (superb Indian food, including great Balti)
  • Clyde’s, Reston Town Center (grand American dining)
  • Da Domenico, McLean (excellent veal)
  • Clydes Willow Creek Farm, Ashburn (a slightly nicer Clyde’s but further away)
  • Fireworks Pizza, Leesburg (pizza right from a wood-fired oven; yummilicious!)
  • Tuscarora Mill, Leesburg (atmospheric American eats)
