Neighborhood Eats: Clyde’s Tower Oaks Lodge

Whether it’s retro travel (Chevy Chase) or rustic fishing camp (Alexandria and Rockville), Clyde’s has a different look in each locale. Menus straddle old and new with a nod to farm-fresh and well-priced monthly specials, but beware of anything fusiony.

What to get: Pear-and-frisée salad; hot steak salad with feta; turkey burger; Parmesan-crusted trout; Wagyu pot roast with root vegetables; monthly specials of crab cakes, lobster, rockfish, and filet mignon; seasonal produce specials.
