The Virginia-Highland steak cellar boasts a chic, vintage, prohibition-era atmosphere and serves up a stylish selection of sophisticated salads, steaks, sandwiches, and seafood. Start with an order of the jumbo lump crab cakes served with a sweet chili aioli ($11), or dip a tiny fork into the French delicacy of escargot ($9), which rests in rich scampi butter and asiago cheese. A large selection of salads ($5+) offers the promise of sophisticated garden soirees for the mouth, complemented by elegant entrees such as the jumbo scallops ($27) served over apple-smoked bacon grits with grilled asparagus and a beurre blanc sauce. Decadent diners should indulge in a serving of slow-roasted prime rib ($20+) or hickory-fired steak, such as the house-specialty Oscar, which pairs two 4-ounce filet medallions under a cozy blanket of jumbo lump crab, asparagus, and béarnaise sauce, alongside a pile of garlic mashers ($30).
Dappled in warm, dark hues from the stone walls, wooden support pillars, and dim lighting, this stylish underground eatery looks every part a charming speakeasy, without the nuisances of oversized animal mascots and popsicle vendors now common at most theme-park speakeasies. As the evenings progress at the Highland Tap, the bar, stocked full of fine spirits, becomes the focal point of the joint, and smokers exiled from the smoke-free dining room may migrate to the bar area to partake in a puff. An outdoor patio is also available for fair-weather dining, and a Sunday brunch supplies early risers with sophisticated tween-time sustenance.
