Washington D.C.


As Tysons Corner becomes more of a go-to and live-in destination, numerous eateries abound, and among the more desirable destinations is the newcomer, Earls Kitchen + Bar. Reservations for lunch or dinner, and probably weekend brunches, guarantee patrons a table or booth. Otherwise, folks can hang out at one of the bars—the Old-Fashion mini bar specializes in bourbon, and makes a comfy waiting space.

Part of a larger, international chain, Mango Tree arrived in D.C. at the beginning of 2015. Within four months, opening chef Paul Kennedy left, leaving sous chef Adrian Salazar alone with the reigns.

Why We Came

Sleek Bibiana Osteria Enoteca is appointed with dark wood, layers of artistic glass, black leather, and lighting accents that speak of high-style Milanese design. The color scheme ranges from gold and beige tones found in the carpet to shades of silver grey-to-black incorporated in the fabrics, lighting warm jewel accents. Design efforts are led by Harry Gregory of London-based ARA Design.
