The Best Restaurant in Vienna?

While there a hundreds of different sources on the best place to dine in Vienna, one of interest is the Washingtonian’s 2016 “100 Very Best Restaurants”. Obviously this covers the greater Washington, DC and Fairfax Country area and not just Vienna. Two restaurants in Vienna made the list: Clarity, which opened in the summer of 2015 at 244 Maple Ave East, Vienna VA and Nostos at 8100 Boone Blvd, Vienna, VA.

Clarity restaurant came in an impressive #26. As far as Northern Virginia restaurants go, Clarity was the second top ranked only behind Jaleo in Crystal City, VA. Here is what the Washingtonian had to say about Clarity:

“The debut of this Vienna restaurant was among the most feel-good stories of the year. It marked the return of local boy Jonathan Krinn, once the wunderkind chef at 2941. When Krinn left to open the glitzy Inox, in Tysons, he failed—and failed big: a victim of the times (Inox opened in 2008, when the market crashed) and his own bloated dreams. Clarity is a more modest venture, a neighborhood restaurant first and foremost. Ambition has shrunk, to be sure, but the classical chops are still there, and it’s not hard to see that Krinn, working with ex–Central chef Jason Maddens, is relaxed and cooking with passion. Actually, you can taste it in dish after dish, from seared foie gras with blackberries to a rich two-patty burger that ought to come with four napkins. But among the most appealing aspects of the place are small flourishes—the freshly baked breads and happy-making desserts.

Don’t miss: mussels and Thai-style sausage; gnudi with fava beans; pork chop; fried quail; tarte Tatin; chocolate cake.”

The mussels and Thai-style sausage are definitely worth checking out. Here is how to get there
