If you’re in search of a casual vibe with elevated fare, you’re going to love The Union. This locally owned favorite is in McLean, just about a 10-minute drive away and worth every minute on the road! Owned and operated by Giridhar Sastry, a native of India, the menu is a fusion of his global culinary experiences, all in one magical menu.
The menu features a variety of small and large plates, perfect for sharing or indulging in alone! If you’re in a solo mood, start with the watermelon gazpacho, a summertime favorite. Then grab the wagyu petite tender with yukon mashed potatoes, mushrooms, caramelized onions, and chimichurri or a Mumbai panini featuring chaat masala for something a little more casual. For those that are in a sharing mood, grab a bunch of plates to share! Favorites are the chicken pibil sliders, calamari with Lebanese garlic sauce, and sesame wings with a sweet and spicy glaze. The yuca fries are also great if you want something with a little Latin flair. Save room for a jumbo chocolate chip cookie for dessert!
They offer happy hour daily starting at 3:00 p.m. with $1 off beverages and $1 off the small plates. If you love a deal, that’s the time to go!
