Food critic revisits Reston restaurant - and not thrilled with what he sees.
Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema's 2012 Spring Dining Guide is out. In it, he revisits several Washington-area restaurants to see how they are holding up a few years later. In 2008, Sietsema liked what he saw at Reston Town Center's Passionfish. In 2012, not so much. Sietsema calls Passionfish's cioppino "wan" and its sushi "gloppy." He gives Passionfish one star.
