Favorite Friday's: What's Your Favorite Restaurant in Gaithersburg?


Today’s Favorite Friday idea came to fruition when I was visiting my friend in Gaithersburg, Md. I was starved and we wanted something to eat. We chose Vasilis Mediterranean Grill, because we were in the mood for outside seating and I was craving a Greek salad full of olives and feta. Every item on the menu is made on-site so it is very fresh and the bread is right out of the oven. The salad was amazing and the hummus had the perfect blend of olive oil and seasoning.

Here are a few other options to try in the area:

One of my best friends is Peruvian and he introduced me to Peruvian food, which I thoroughly enjoy. Sardis Pollo a La Brasa is very good and they give you a huge portion for a great price (under $10.00 dollars). I always get a charbroiled quarter chicken (so juicy!) that comes with two sides. I chose Yuca, which is a favorite and the vegetable of the day. I have heard that the Pollo Saltado is delicious and will try that when I return.

Copper Canyon Grill is in a perfect location and the food is very good. I would recommend the Wood Grilled Tenderloin Beef Tip Salad with mixed greens, homemade cornbread, red onion, grape tomatoes, pear, smoked Gouda & Honey-sesame vinaigrette for a great mix of sweet and salty!

Additionally, Wine Harvest is a great spot. The patio is always packed on the weekends so get there early. There is not a big dining area but the Goat Cheese and Hazelnut dish with fresh goat cheese, hazelnuts and drizzled honey served with grapes and toasted baguette slices is scrumptious. They also have great Roast Beef options with crumbled blue cheese or Provolone. Wash that down with a refreshing glass of Sangria or you can purchase a bottle of wine, drink it there with your meal, for a small fee of $7.00 dollars!
