    Default Dining recommendations for Reston, VA?

    I'll be in Reston, Virginia, next week, and I'm wondering where the nearby
    good places to eat might be.

    The chowhound responses have only contained recommendations for Thai and
    Indian restaurants. There *must* be more than that!

    Anybody familiar with Reston or its neighbors? I don't want to get too
    caught up in the D.C. traffic; I expect to be very busy when I'm there, and
    I usually consider transit time to be wasted time.

    Bob

    I don't know how far afield you want to go, but American Flatbread in
    Ashburn is supposed to be good. That's maybe 10-15 miles from Reston:

    If you're looking for *really* good food, with the prices a relative steal,
    about three miles away in Great Falls:

    You might also want to check out yelp.com....kind of like chowhound but all
    sorts of other stuff gets reviewed too, not just food.
