I was in Reston for some conferences and couldn't get into my restaurant of 1st choice, so my friend and I went to Vapiano. It's an unusual place. They have open seating and no servers. Instead, you get a smart card that you take to the order counter and when you ask the chef for your menu choice, he loads the price on your card. You then wait and watch him prepare your chosen dish for you. Soft drinks are self service as well. When you are finished, you return to the front of the restaurant with your card and proceed to "check out." Well, I chose from the Pasta Gruppo D list, the Scampi E Spinaci. It was OK, I suppose, but a bit bland for my tastes. Quite an unusual place with an unusual concept, but I don't think I'd care to return.
