Order the Deviled Egg App at Virtue Feed and Grain

August 20, 2014 4:02 pm

Eating well isn’t a vice when you go to Virtue Feed and Grain in Alexandria. This Old Town bar and restaurant is actually housed in an old feed barn that's been reconditioned by using repurposed materials.The result is a place that blends into the surroundings, but also stands out on its own.

The interior is rustic, with brick and wood walls showing the original construction. The upstairs bar and lounge is cool and comfortable, with nice couches and burlap bag pillows. This makes for a perfect post-work meeting spot with friends, or you could come for lunch and dinner to try some of the classic cuisine. The burgers and entrees are all good, but don’t pass up the deviled egg appetizer.

Virtue Feed and Grain is open every day, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. Be sure to come back for the brunch on Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
