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.
