Prince William & Manassas, VA (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
With new celebrity-inspired restaurants, innovative food tours and historic towns filled with locally owned eateries, Prince William & Manassas are must-visit Virginia dining destinations for foodies and anyone looking to ignite their culinary senses.
Food Tour Corporation recently launched a tour through Prince William & Manassas that connects visitors to both the region’s rich history and unique culinary options.
Groups of five or more can book the tours that can include stops at historic sites like Manassas National Battlefield Park to local farmer’s markets, restaurants and Prince William’s sole winery. Located at the foothills of the Bull Run Mountains, The Winery at La Grange features a dozen Virginia wines and tastings in a haunted 18th-century manor house.
Food Tour Corporation isn’t the only organization expanding into this destination. Celebrities are bringing trendy new eateries into Prince William. In May, celebrity chef Bobby Flay opened his first Virginia Bobby’s Burger Palace at Potomac Mills and, later this year, Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill is slated to open in Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center, located in Prince William’s eastern end.
Not only do new culinary options abound in this Virginia dining hot-spot, but the locally owned restaurants continue to thrive in two historic towns just 30 miles from metro D.C. Savor cuisine from around the world in the heart of Old Town Manassas. This once sleepy railroad town is now filled with boutiques and locally owned restaurants.
Enjoy tapas along the railroad tracks at City Square Café, authentic Italian fare at Monza and get a taste of Louisiana at Okra’s Cajun Creole. During summer weekends, diners can listen to live music in the streets as they dine al fresco under the moonlight.
Continue the culinary adventure in Historic Occoquan. Nestled along the banks of the Occoquan River, this town features 60 shops and restaurants. Dine al fresco along the shores of the river at Madigan’s Waterfront or have a romantic evening at the quaint cottage of Bistro L’Hermitage- one of the finest French restaurants in the D.C. metropolitan area.
Tucked away on one of the town’s alleys, visitors are transported to an authentic European neighborhood bistrot at Cock & Bowl. There, sample more than 60 Belgian-style beers, mussels and frites. For dessert, visit Mom’s Apple Pie to pick up a treat worthy of the first lady.
