Dining Around the World Series, Lost Dog Cafe (Italian) Tue 12/11 6:30PM

There are over a dozen ethnic restaurants in South Arlington along the Columbia Pike corridor.  RSVP ONLY IF COMING. Let's talk theater - what you have seen and what you want to see.

Our fifth dining experience will be at Lost Dog Cafe (Pizza Pub/Italian), 2920 Columbia Pike

"South Arlington marked the growth of the Lost Dog Café in Arlington, as Pam & Ross (owners of North Arlington Lost Dog Cafe) invited Arlington locals and previous Lost Dog North Employees Jim & Mike Barnes, Wes Clough and Mike Danner to assist them in increasing their paw print of Lost Dog Café to the Southside of Arlington. A newly expanded store in January of 2012, this location provides local patrons 16 taps and over 250 bottle selections." And, I might add, some delicious pasta dishes, in addition to a wide variety of pizza and sandwich selections.

    Darlene et al,
    Where would be the best place to look for parking at this time? The hotel next door? I'd like to see if the logistics would make this possible for me!
