The Grille at Morrison House: An Old Town Alexandria Restaurant & Bar The Grille at Morrison House is a Federal-style mansion situated in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, surrounded by history and grace, and within walking distance of the area's charming antique stores, art galleries, boutique shops, restaurants and museums. Morrison House itself is a AAA Four Diamond property and was named to Condé Nast Traveler's 2008 Gold List. But what's inside is where it counts. What's Inside is Where it Counts The Grille elegantly blends the best of the past with today's freshest tastes. A place "where antique meets modern," where a spectacular collection of art and elegant period furnishings complements Chef Brian McPherson contemporary interpretations of French and American cuisine. Where classic teas and special occasions provide the foundation for some of Chef McPherson's most imaginative creations. The Grille's contrasts make it an extraordinary place to enjoy a meal, share a libation and relax in fine style.
