Eamonn's a Dublin Chipper

728 King St.
Alexandria, VA, 22314, United States
TEL: (703) 299-8384

Owned by Irish chef Cathal Armstrong and his wife Meshelle, also the creators of nearby Restaurant Eve, this fish-and-chips restaurant is modeled after the traditional “chippers” Armstrong frequented while growing up in Dublin. Named after the couple’s son, Eamonn’s is housed in a tiny space with exposed brick walls, a pressed-tin ceiling, and simple wooden seating for only 20 diners. The specialty—fried cod with hand-cut chips—is served in a brown paper bag with one of seven house-made sauces, which include tartar, curry, and hot chili. A pint of Guinness and a fried chocolate bar complete the experience.

Insider Tip:

The restaurant is often filled to capacity during peak hours; if you can’t find a seat, take your food to Waterfront Park for a picnic beside the Potomac River.
