One of the things I like to do when I am out of town or traveling somewhere is to talk to the local people. You can learn a multiple of things by asking questions and listening to what they have to say.
Today, I want to introduce you to Ciearra, my favorite server at a restaurant and sports bar A-Town. She is friendly, outgoing, and pleasantly attentive. She walks fast on the floor and works energetically, always smiling to her customers. Her service is surprisingly timely. When I was about to finish my drink, she is right there to offer me another. When I ask her for a menu, she will come right back with one. The best part of having her as your attendant is the communication exchanges with her. She knows how to make you feel special and that is an important quality you can rarely find in daily life. You say Japanese servers are more attentive, but, hey, they cannot beat her. Because Ciearra is there, I drop by at this joint every time I get the chance. She is a native of the Northern Virginia area and knows a lot about it. It is a good idea to ask her where to go and what to see when you visit Arlington.
Arlington used to belong to Washington, D.C., the capital city of the U.S. Many tourists do visit Washington, D.C. but only a few might go a way further to its closest vicinity across the Potomac. Do visit Arlington for it is only a few miles from downtown Washington D.C.
The food at A-Town is tasty and I can tell a lot of thoughts, skills, and knowledge are poured into creating a dish. The restaurant has a bar counter where many people gather, socially engaging themselves. Many large-screen displays show various TV broadcasts, mainly sports channels and news programs. The section surrounding the bar counter is the dining area with elegantly set tables with comfortable seats. The windows are from the floor to the ceiling along the main corridor, Farifax Drive, so you can do a people watch if you are seated by the window.
A-Town is very close from the Ballston-MU Metro Station on the Orange or Silver Line as you see in the map below. The restaurant has an urban, upbeat ambiance and gives a meticulously clean impression. The restaurant's official website is: http://a-townballston.com/. You will have a pleasant experience, I assure you.
