Härth at Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, VA

11 of 17

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.
