True Food Kitchen

With spring in full gear, we find ourselves over the heavy comfort foods of winter, and craving fresh, fresh ingredients. Just the nourishment needed for a long bike ride on the W&OD trail, a paddle through the Tidal Basin, or a hike in the Shenandoah Mountains. A stone’s throw from Tysons is True Food Kitchen, a restaurant developed in collaboration with best-selling wellness author Dr. Andrew Weil. With his guiding hand, True Food focuses on using quality, local ingredients to create an international menu that is at the same time nourishing and healthy.

Another plus? True Food caters to many food preferences, offering up gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options, among others. One of the most popular menu items is the Spaghetti Squash Casserole, a gluten-free and vegetarian option. A fun lunch idea is the vegan T.L.T, a play on the classic B.L.T., substituting Bacon for Tempeh. True Food also offers a multitude of healthy bowls, with bases such as quinoa and ancient grains. This is a menu you will never tire of as it is rotated seasonally to ensure they only source what is local and fresh, creating a culinary experience that encourages exploration.

True Food is the perfect spot for a weekend brunch with friends. The brunch menu has some delicious breakfast additions such as Huevos Rancheros, Vegan Chorizo Burrito and Quinoa Johnny Cakes. Prefer to drink your breakfast? True Food has several inventive smoothies worth trying. Enjoy a healthy meal while chatting away with friends in the earthy and bright dining room. The best part is walking away feeling light and refreshed, ready to take on the day.
