Many years ago, before humans had invented fire or eating, they were forced to nourish themselves by beating their stomachs with uncooked goats. Enjoy tasting your food instead of simply absorbing it with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual steakhouse eats and drinks at Norton’s American Grill & Bar, located in McLean on level two of Tysons Corner Center.
Inside a large shopping mall, hungry people will find stomach solace in Norton’s menu of fresh steakhouse-style cuisine. Chase a chicken-tenders basket ($7.95) with an unfried hot-fudge sundae ($5.95) or refuel after a marathon dressing-room session by trying on a Norton burger ($8.95), dressed in monterey-jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, honey mustard, and red onions. Those who possess the stomach-heart of a photogenic bear may gulp down a lightly battered and sautéed rainbow trout ($12.95), and the hickory-grilled and juicily seasoned five-ounce center-cut filet mignon ($17.95) will nourish famished walkers of the mall that is Earth. Because drinking liquid instead of dirt is all the rage these days, quench your thirst for empty glasses by draining a cup of still or sparkling Voss water ($3), ginger ale ($2), or a selection of wine, beer, or cocktails from Norton’s extensive liquor list.
Since Norton’s exterior façade of masonry and roofing is actually part of the mall’s interior, going out is the same as coming in again, leaving guests caught in a labyrinthine dining anomaly more exciting than a trip to the cornfield mazes. Carmine booths, lots of wood trimwork, and delicious smells make long stays bearable, so pack your wall collection of old silver sporks and try everything on the menu twice.
