Restaurant

Dublin native, Chef Cathal (silent “t”) Armstrong, his wife Meshelle, and partner Todd Thrasher have created a restaurant based on gracious service, supreme ingredients and resolute focus.

 

Restaurant Eve has one intention: to bring everything together in perfect harmony—ingredients, cooking techniques, presentation, and that ephemeral, indescribable characteristic that we call soulfulness. We purchase from farms that share our values of quality and sustainability,  and showcase the best hand-fed, farm-raised, organically grown bounty Virginia and the surrounding countryside have to offer. 

 

Herbs and fruits are gathered from our own garden and everything on our menu 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; to our carefully chosen ingredients, everything signals a seriousness and reverence for the farmers, crafters, and all the culinary professionals who wish to bring you beautiful food.

 

Restaurant Eve, named after the husband and wife duo’s first child, is located in Old Town, Alexandria, listed by many travel sites as one of the most romantic towns in America, 10 minutes from Washington DC, Restaurant Eve is housed 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 special occasions are fondly remembered.
