Sine Irish Pub & Restaurant tickles taste buds with a menu of traditional Irish cuisine backed up by savory American sandwiches and salads. Beneath a sprinkling of herbs, the broiled Blarney salmon ($16.99) sings alongside a dazzling duo of sides that chaperones each Irish specialty like an unattached prom guest. For a meal straight out of the Emerald Isle, curious cravers can tunnel into a plate of corned beef and cabbage ($13.29) or slurp beef-and-Guinness stew, a hearty helping of slow-braised beef chunks and vegetables cavorting in a calming bath of Ireland’s darkest brew ($11.99). Guests can also sup on one of more than 13 sandwiches on the restaurant's outdoor patio, which is festooned with green umbrellas, curving metal fence work, and air as fresh as flirtatious laundry.
L.A. Bar & Grill, with its classic brick front and festive interior, welcomes Arlington residents for maximum hanging-outing. A hearty assortment of brews has glasses brimming, and savory menu selections keep hunger at bay. The house-specialty "hog wings" ($8.50) make ideal companions on Redskins-rooting Sundays, when the L.A.'s nine flat- screen TVs fulfill their ultimate purpose. A game of pigskin also goes well with L.A. Bar & Grill's potato skins, succulent slices layered with cheddar cheese and a choice of bacon or chili ($8). Seven burger options, including the hearty applewood-smoked bacon burger ($9) or the L.A. Woman, topped with swiss, bacon, barbecue sauce, grilled onions, mushrooms, and Cajun seasonings ($9.50), will pique your hunger tooth and activate dormant burger glands at the base of your skull. Cruise the country with a Philly cheesesteak ($8.50) or a rack of St. Louis–style ribs ($9 for half-rack, $17 for full rack), or stomach-ski across the pond with a helping of rockfish and chips ($11).
It seems quite easy to make grilled kebabs—all you need is skewers, an open flame, and hunks of meats. However, it’s remarkable how well the chefs at Kabob Bazaar prepare their tasty, charred chunks of swordfish, salmon, lamb, and ground sirloin year after year, as they celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2014. Alongside their namesake cuisine, other Persian eats, such as stuffed grape leaves and beef-tongue sandwiches, which are served on baguettes from the eatery’s tandoor oven, meet diners for lunch or dinner. For dessert, guests might sample the housemade baklava or two scoops of housemade ice cream—flavored with rose water and saffron. All of the food is served in a casual dining area that features yellow walls, café chairs, exposed brick, and a bar adorned with three shiny, silver samovars filled with steaming Persian tea.
