Comfort food finds a new home in Old Town Alexandria at The Majestic. This refurbished art deco restaurant was the brainchild of 2006 DC Rising Star Cathal Armstrong. Here Chef Shannon Overmiller taps into the soul of Southern comfort food, but her charcuterie fellowship in Italy gave her a taste for that country’s version of comfort too, and the two meet in the middle with dishes like Fried Green Tomatoes, Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes, Fried Capers, Red Onion, Burrata Cheese, and Basil Purée, the tomato-basil combination of Italian playing well with a dish that is as Southern as, well, fried green tomatoes.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Fried Green Tomatoes, Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes, Fried Capers, Red Onion, Burrata Cheese, and Basil Purée
  • Amish Chicken Two Ways: Seared Chicken Breast, Chicken Leg Confit, Potato-Shallot "Mock" Risotto, and Lemon-Rosemary Jus
