The Plains is exactly what everyone pictures your stereotypical small town to be: a couple streets of shopping, a few beautiful historical homes, a school and one 3-way stop – no traffic lights. So while The Plains edition of the Restaurant Guide includes all of the restaurants in The Plains (because, yes, there are only 4), each one is incredible, unique, and very much worth the trip down Route 66.

Girasole | 4244 Loudoun Avenue

Chef-owned and operated, Girasole uses only the freshest ingredients to create authentic, regional Italian menus. In the picturesque village of The Plains, you’ll experience exceptional service, a relaxing European atmosphere, and the highest quality food and wine. The pasta is made fresh daily, be it stuffed or formed, and desserts follow original recipes from France, Switzerland, and Italy. Watch the interview with the couple behind the magic here.
