I'll be in Arlington in January for work, not sure where I'm staying yet, but could use food recs, if anyone has any.

The SunFlower Restaurant in Fall Church is excellent and is only a short drive from Arlington.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I won't have a car.

assuming you'll be near a bus or subway stop you'll have easy access to the majority of places on the site I linked to. Once you have a better idea of where you'll be staying I can give much better recommendations.

Lost dog cafe has vegan pizza and is in Arlington. Arlington spans a sizeable area though so if you're on foot let us know where you're staying and we can help more.

I was just in Falls Church yesterday and I feel like maybe Sunflower isn't too far from the metro... (correct me if I am wrong).

There are also a couple zpizzas in Arlington and Alexandria (they deliver and have buy one, get one free larges on Tuesdays).

There's Bus Boys and Aladdin's in Shirlington.

ETA- There is also Pizzeria Paradiso and Harmony in Georgetown (which is easy if you end up in Rosslyn).

I hate to recommend salad but there is a sweetgreen at 4075 Wilson Boulevard and sweetgreen is awesome. It's basically chipotle with salad and they have awesome baked falafel and tofu. It's a little pricy for veggies at about $7-9 but a ton of food.

that whole foods is pretty small, but there is an OK food bar. there's a ton of food around there.

lebanese taverna market is awesome! it's basically a lebanese grocery store with a full on deli. they can do mix n match kinda plates for you.

http://www.sarancuisine.com/

another good indian place, not veg but yummy
http://www.delhidhaba.com/

the name of that neighborhood is clarendon, so if you do searches by that, you should find a lot of stuff.

Yea, this place is great. They have vegan chicken, but I haven't tried it. While Northern VA has slim if any vegetarian/vegan places, it's diverse enough that you'll always find good ethiopian, thai, korean, vietnamese, and indian food in a lot of places.
