'New' Restaurant Opens at Reston Towncenter

The new and improved American Tap Room (http://www.americantaproom.com/about.html) opened this week at Reston Towncenter. Located next to Rio Grande and within steps of the movie theater, this reincarnation is worth checking out.

Always known as a great evening bar, the restaurant has been physically redesigned and the menu has been completely reworked.  Like many restaurants, the ATR can offer you either indoor or outdoor seating.

Because my daughter is on the staff (yes, this is a little self-serving), we were lucky to be included in the weekend 'test run' they did last weekend. 

The food was great (I had the lobster, my husband and son had hamburgers and my daughter had steak salad). We started the meal with an order of pan roasted mussels(which were great) and the Spinach & Artichoke Fondue.  We all enjoyed our meals completely.

The wine, in particular, was very expensive by the glass, but we did make a point to the manager that this is a location where people will stop for a  quick glass of wine or a beer before the movies, and if it is too expensive, they will not return. The menu posted on line is still showing Chardonnay by the glass at $14.95 or $16.95. I hope that they are making a change to that pricing.

Seating at Reston Towncenter restaurants is always competitive. American Tap Room is a great option...until it is discovered! Parking is available at either of the two parking garages located on Library Street.
