Great Bars 2013: PassionFish

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.
