Austin Grill in Old Town Alexandria

It's official. I am no longer an Arlingtonian.  While I'll miss being walking distance to work and restaurants, I'm excited to start a new adventure with my boyfriend a little further south.  We hired movers, which made leasing office snafus and idiocracy a lot easier to navigate with a semblance of calm.  Our new place is much nicer, the joy of once again in-unit laundry is immeasurable, and sleep uninterrupted by a continually-running toilet is truly wonderful.  Cable and internet are working, and I've got a lot of unpacking and organizing ahead of me.
We finished preliminary unpacking and apartment set-up after 10 pm.  Unfortunately the area is a wasteland for late-night dining and we had one lonely cheese sandwich in the refrigerator.  We had already swung by Eamonn's on Friday and many other places were closing for the night.  Luckily Austin Grill is open until 11 pm Monday-Thursday, and until 12 am on Friday and Saturday.  The food was surprisingly good, and the post-move Corona was delicious.
Grilled chicken wings had excellent flavor.
Taco Combination - picadillo, carnitas, steak, and chicken.  He said the steak and chicken were the best.
Spinach and portabello mushroom quesadilla.  Nice and not too oily like the version at Los Tios.
