Dublin native Chef Cathal (silent “t”) Armstrong, his wife Meshelle, and business partner Todd Thrasher have created a restaurant based on gracious service, supreme ingredients and resolute focus.
Restaurant Eve, named by the husband and wife duo’s first child, is located in the appealing getaway of Old Town, Alexandria, named by many travel sites as one of the most romantic towns in America. Ten minutes from Washington DC, Restaurant Eve is located in a late 1800‘s historic warehouse that has been converted into a charming and sophisticated destination.
The cobblestone path leading to the restaurant’s entrance is lined with candles that set the tone of what is to come. Inside, the space is simultaneously stylish, cozy and refined—a place where a special occasion is fondly remembered.
Both the Bistro and Tasting Room offer thoughtful preparations that showcase the best hand-fed, farm-raised, organically grown bounty Virginia and the surrounding countryside have to offer.
Everything on our menus has a story, every ingredient is special. From the various offerings of house-made products—which include 7-9 various breads baked daily and artisanal cheeses—to the roster of craft cocktails, by cocktail authority Todd Thrasher, our carefully chosen ingredients signal a seriousness that extends throughout the operation.
Restaurant Eve exudes reverence and passion for the culinary arts and hospitality.
“We wish to bring everything together in perfect harmony—ingredients, cooking techniques, presentation, and that ephemeral, indescribable characteristic that we call soulfulness.”
