Old Town in Alexandria is a wonderful
place to visit, with lots of shops to browse, restaurants to visit, and
parks along the Potomac to explore. The Chart House waterfront
location offers a wonderful escape from the bustle of a city. The
outdoor patio overlooks the river as well as the weekend entertainment on
the boardwalk; an ideal place to just sit and relax (forewarning: it is very
busy when the weather is agreeable).
The Caesar's Salad can be ordered with
an entree, or purchased as part of their salad bar; I ordered it with my
entree. The croutons seemed a bit soft; the cheese was
interestingly cut in strings vs. grated or shaved; some of the romaine
leaves were browning at the edges (yes - I shouldn't have been too
surprised; it was a Sunday...). The zesty bites were
far and few between.
I wouldn't rush back for more Caesar's,
but I would return for another delicious salmon, the beautiful sun
glistening over the water, and the warm breeze brushing over my shoulders
as I sip my wine.
