I love their locally sourced, seasonal dinner menu and artisan brews - plus it's just a quick zip down Gee-Dub Parkway and there's easy parking (and Buzz Bakery across the street for take home treats.)
Our conversation will remain between the two of us, but the brunch, we'll share. Replicate our order and you won't go wrong (not that you could on Rustico's menu.) Start with the tangy Bloody Mary, then split an order of the pillowy Ricotta Donuts and finish out with the Fried Green Tomato Pizza. Between the two of us, we still had leftovers!

Rustico (that we went to) is located at 827 Slaters Lane in Alexandria, VA. Though, that location is not very Metro friendly, they have a new location in Ballston at 4075 Wilson Blvd. in Arlington, VA.
