Extra Virgin, Shirlington, Arlington, VA
This is one of my favorite places for Friday night dinner. It's a perfect blend of kid friendly and adult friendly. We go here on Friday nights and get a good pizza for the kids and a nice bottle of wine and adult food for ourselves and by adult food; I don't mean your choice of chicken fingers, quesadillas and salad from a bar with a sneeze guard. This is a place where you can hear good jazz music AND get a highchair and crayons for the kids. All this and nice bathrooms!! What more could a person ask for in life? First off, it was very clean! No paper on the floor, the sink and commodes were spotless. The decor was a light colored wood with gray granite or stone tiles. The lighting was perfect and the mirrors were large and clean. The best part; everything was automated!! The toilets, the towel dispenser and the trashcans were all automated (my 5 year old got a kick out of that). The less I have to touch in a bathroom the better. Great going Extra Virgin, you get the best automation award!
