Last Friday we decided to go to dinner in downtown Fairfax. Here's Alice putting her car seat in our new car, and then Alice and Miriam in the back seat.
The Wine House is in a courtyard in a beautifully designed modern building. Several other restaurants offer seating there as well -- and children play while their parents are finishing up. Here's Alice just as we sat down.
We ordered a variety of items from the menu. I enjoyed the small plate of duck breast with arugula and lentil salad. We had several plates of bread with tapenade (a nice version with dried tomatoes as well as the traditional olives) and cream cheese and also crackers and various hard cheeses. The wine and atmosphere were very pleasant.
