Evo Bistro, web site, 1313 Old Chain Bridge Road, McLean, VA, 703-288-4422 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Washingtonian | WaPo | City Paper | MenuPages | Don Rockwell | Yelp | Gayot]
To say a place is “as cool as McLean gets” may not sound like high praise, but I suppose now it is. This mix of Moroccan and Spanish tapas is genuinely excellent, even if the Merlot-sipping wine bar crowd is a turn-off. The various forms of sausage are excellent, as is the tuna. Focus on the most Moroccan dishes, I would say. It’s very good. Really. Good cheeses and dessert too.

The Evo Crepe crab cakes are phenomenal, too!
I had a less than spectacular lamb tangine there…the meat was tender but there’s no flavor. That was just one experience…I would love to hear more stories about this McLean restaurants.
