Eat

  • L'Auberge Chez Francois, 332 Springvale Rd, Great Falls, VA 22066, (703) 759-3800, [2]. A highest-end French restaurant. Dinner jackets required. $$$$, you better be loaded homes.
  • The Old Brouge Irish Pub, 760 Walker Rd, Great Falls, VA 22066, [3]. A Great Falls classic. It's been expanding its menu and you can find all manner of cuisines here, but still the Brogue stays true to Irish roots and its atmosphere as a crowded, noisy pub. There's also a homey dining room in the annex. $$.

Visit the Old Brogue for a frosty pint of Guinness.
