Passion Food Hospitality’s modern, multilevel seafood spot in Reston Town Center is one of those rare places where it’s actually fun to wait for your table—thanks to a sleek, sinuous bar where a well-heeled, multigenerational crowd check one another out while sipping mango and pomegranate margaritas, Moscow mules made with fresh lime juice, and tasty mojitos sweetened with guarapo (palm-tree sap). Insider tip: A stellar happy hour with $5 specials—cocktails, draft beers, six wines by the glass, and food specials—draws locals, so arrive early to secure a seat, then relax and enjoy the people-watching. Open daily.
