Fine dining at upscale Vermilion in Old Town, Alexandria. It was very good under its previous chef, but is at the highest level under its relatively new chef. Innovative American fare with wonderful flavors. At dinner last night, for appetizers my friends had chilled corn...More

Vermilion features Chef William Morris' menu of Contemporary American cuisine. Complimenting Chef Morris' menu is Vermilion's wine list, named one of the top wine lists in the country by Restaurant Hospitality Magazine. Combining a charming location in Old town Alexandria with stylized design and atmosphere, Vermilion represents a bit of downtown sophistication: from the exposed brick in the upstairs dining room to the overstuffed pillows in the lounge downstairs, Vermilion holds something for all tastes.
