America's Hottest New Hotel Restaurants
Härth at Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, VA
Chef Thomas Elder is committed to locally sourced ingredients—so much so that he planted his own kitchen garden and installed a beehive on the restaurant’s rooftop. Dishes spotlight Virginia-raised meats and produce grown in the surrounding Shenandoah countryside (McLean is just 11 miles northwest of D.C.). As befits the restaurant’s name, a copper-clad wood-burning oven anchors the dining room and turns out creative flatbreads like caramelized pear with Maryland blue cheese and roasted mushroom with truffled sea salt.
Must-Try Dish: Chef Elder’s grandma’s meatball recipe, made from a combination of beef, pork, and veal and topped with roasted tomato sauce, $9; harthrestaurant.com.
