(Updated 10:55 a.m.) The 100 Very Best Restaurant list is back from Washingtonian and it features two Alexandria spots.

The list, formerly limited only to sit-down restaurants, now includes carryout, pop-ups and food trucks. Both Alexandria locations, though, are restaurants in the traditional sense.

The first is Nasime, a Japanese restaurant at 1209 King Street.

In their review, Washingtonian described Nasime as “one of the most in­spired–and inspiring–dining experiences around unfolds in this sliver of an Old Town storefront.” Praising the single seven-course menu featuring Japanese short rib, bonito and more paired with sake and Japanese highballs.

The second is Thompson Italian, which has a location at 1024 King Street and one at 124 N. Washington Street in Falls Church, which features an array of Italian dishes from gnocchi to squid ink bucatini and tagliatelle.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
