Which Exit Will It Be? May 10, 2008Posted by smooregasbord in Around Town, Food, General, Travel.
This month’s issue of Southern Living magazine features a story called “Best Exits Off of I-95“. The first exit featured is 177B where they visit Le Gaulois Cafe in Old Town Alexandria. While I personally haven’t tried their french cuisine, locals rate this restaurant among one of their favorites. I’m also told that their Valentine’s Day menu is exquisite along with the romantic setting that they offer. I’m certainly marking it as a “place to try”. That’s the thing I love about this area…so many great offerings, not enough time to try them all!
The second exit is 148 where they make a pit stop at the Potomac Point Winery in Stafford, VA. Their petit verdot has won awards at several local wine events. The article encourages you to try their Richland Reserve, a bordeaux blend. Dezel of Vine Spot, a local wine blog, stated that it was “Stafford’s best kept secret.”
They continue their travels all the way to Palm Beach, Florida; however, I’m only mentioning the two locales closest to the DC area. Check out the article to see which exits you want to take on your next road trip southward bound.
