Enjoying the Splendors of Blue Ridge

With Barton Seaver at the helm, Glover Park's Blue Ridge is a true dining delight.
The restaurant opened early this summer to the joy of DC residents and sustainable food advocates alike. Blue Ridge draws inspiration from the mountains which it is named for; understated communal tables acquired from Eastern Market, refurbished church pews, modern (and fantastic) light fixtures and hardwood floors. The atmosphere is perfect for an enjoyable dining experience, and is paired quite nicely with a great wine selection; including many well priced wines and local Virginia wines. Emphasizing local food and sustainable as well, Blue Ridge is all about one thing; quality food.
Barton Seaver's famed Grilled calamari with basil-walnut pesto is a total knock out. Whether you choose fresh seafood, heirloom tomatoes, chicken pot pie or the fried green tomato BLT, you will not be disappointed. I will be returning VERY soon.
