My third trip to this Ashburn, VA location. I love the raw oysters. A traditional tray of iced oysters on the half shell, served with cocktail, horseradish, and mignonette sauces. I have found it difficult to find raw oysters that have consistent quality and selection with an affordable price, but Ford's is my answer. That is just the starter. Their Angry Mussels are extremely yummy. Mussels, chorizo, tomatoes, garlic, and onions with toasted ciabatta to soak up the spicy broth. The 1 pound serving could be a second appetizer but the 2 pound serving is definitely a meal, unless you want to share. I would also recommend the Rocket Shrimp; flash fried shrimp tossed in a chili garlic sauce and served over an Asian slaw. This is a great stop for the seafood lover and on the weekends they serve brunch dishes like spinach and crab omelette or the corn flaked crusted french toast. I suggest reservations on Friday and Saturday night or expect a long wait.
