The Jamieson Grille: Surprising yet Familiar

By Jordan Wright

Discovering the Jamieson Grill is like finding an old friend on Facebook…surprising yet comfortably familiar.

For those of us who have lived in Alexandria for 20 or more years, as I have, we have watched the promising development of the Eisenhower Avenue corridor. Where once there were warehouses, empty fields and a go-cart track, there are now hotels, movie theatres, high-rises and businesses rising up from a previous wasteland.

We’ve seen the old Federal Courthouse on Washington Street, moved to its elegant new building on Courthouse Square and The U.S. Patent and Trade Office with its pulsing night-time light show has brought more than 9,000 new jobs to our town from its Crystal City location. What some of you may not know is throughout this new area, can be found some of the city’s most exciting new venues.

The Westin Alexandria opened in 2007 and recently I had the opportunity to visit the Jamieson Grill and Trademark Bar that are centered in this emerging community.

This sleek hotel with its mid-century modern interior is well located in the Eisenhower Valley area of Alexandria. The Grill offers valet parking for its dinner guests, an auspicious way to start your evening…and on a weekend night that is a real convenience.
