Quiet Old Town becoming a Mecca for quality restaurants

While Old Town, Alexandria is technically part of DC suburbia, there is more action going on here than meets the eye.
An influx of fantastic restaurants have hit the cobblestone streets including many of the top DC restaurants according to the Washingtonian: Restaurant Eve, the Majestic, Vermillion, Farrah Olivia and PX the uber fun speakeasy with killer cocktails run by expert bartender Todd Trasher.

Welcome a new name to that list, Brabo Restaurant from restaurateur, Robert Weidmaier (of Marcel's and Brassiere Beck). The restaurant is part of the Kimpton Group's Lorien Hotel & Spa in Old Town, and features two dining rooms: Brabo and Brabo Tasting Room.
I was alerted of Brabo by my lovely friend Caroline Cassidy, who recommends the mussels with wine.
