Having recently moved to the Burke area, I’ve been busy exploring my new surroundings to find tasty eats and unique atmospheres. I’m happy to report I’ve found both at my new favorite restaurant, Trummer’s on Main.
Historic Clifton is, in general, a special area worth checking out. It’s a small-town relic of preserved history from Northern Virginia’s past. A stroll down Main Street allows you to read about the town’s history when it was a spa getaway for DC residents in the 1800s. And unlike Old Town Alexandria or some of the other historic areas, Clifton has not been built up with modern day restaurants or chains. Instead there are just a few independently owned restaurants and shops that preserve the old world charm. The area also maintains a small population and limited visitors so walking the street and enjoying the area makes you feel like you’ve been let in on a secret club.
Trummer’s on Main was once an inn bursting at the seams with visitors every weekend. Today it no longer is an inn, but the restaurant still encapsulates the relaxed atmosphere and feel of a getaway from real life. With the largest wine cellar in the Mid-Atlantic region and food that rivals top restaurants around the world, Trummer’s is a can’t miss! The best part is the kitchen is one of the friendliest to the gluten-free population I’ve found. Every time I’ve gone I’ve been completely spoiled.
My husband and I were in last week for Restaurant Week and not only did I enjoy my own entire basket of delicious gluten-free bread for myself, they also whipped me up my own molten chocolate lava cake for dessert. Both were amazing and prepared to perfection. I was also able to enjoy a cappuccino lobster bisque and horseradish crusted salmon off the regular menu. The server informed me that the chef naturally prepares things gluten-free when the opportunity presents itself. My husband and I both walked out feeling stuffed and extremely satisfied. We can’t wait for our next visit.
