If you can't fall in love at Restaurant Eve, it's time to join the lonely hearts club. Old Town, Alexandria's quintessential date spot helmed by Chef/Owner Cathal Armstrong still sings after 12 years. Put your meal in Armstrong's capable hands by going the tasting menu route ($105 for five courses; $140 for seven courses) and surrender to whatever beverage savant Todd Thrasher wants to pour. For a slightly more casual and adventurous evening, the restaurant is still offering its hot and funky Asian tasting menu ($65) that pulls from Thailand and the Philippines.
