Having eaten at many of the restaurants on the 101 Best list, I have to say that I am amazed that many of them are on it. It seems as though NY, Chicago, and Los Angeles are the only good cities to eat in.
One restaurant that I recently enjoyed and that should be on this list is, "The Restaurant At Patowmack Farm" in Lovettsville, Virginia. http://www.patowmackfarm.com/Restaurant.html
They grow all of their own produce organically and the meat and seafood is fresh and locally procured. Chef Christopher Edwards does absolutely magical things with his bounty of fresh ingredients straight from the farm to your table. This Loudoun County restaurant is a must stop for anyone visiting northern Virginia and the District of Columbia.
