Hot off the Glover Park Yahoo Newsgroup from Arcuri co-owner Adam Hiltebeitel:
Tuesday, October 1st 2013, Arcuri [2400 Wisconsin Ave.] presents FAMILY NIGHT. Bring the kids; let us take care of you. Every Tuesday beginning tomorrow, KIDS EAT FREE at Arcuri.
Purchase an adult entree or pasta (one kid per adult) Strollers are welcome and encouraged! Yes we have a kids’ menu, high chairs, booster seats, kids’ cups, and more! We won’t make you do the dishes!
Arcuri is accepting applications for all its hourly positions through Friday, according to a Craigslist post: “Experience is a plus but detail oriented, hard working and fun are a must!” The Venice-style trattoria is taking over the former Kavanagh’s Pizza Pub space at 2400 Wisconsin Ave. Co-owner Adam Hiltebeitel says he anticipates opening around June 5, but “we’ll certainly be at Glover Park Day” on June 1 with pizza and other offerings.
Though the full menu is still “a work in progress,” according to Hiltebeitel, the draft includes misticanza salad with duck prosciutto, Sicilian pinenuts, and ramp dressing ($9.50); wood-fired pork chop with vinegar peppers, glazed cipollini, and pork jus ($20); and pizza toppings such as green apple, fennel sausage, and broccoli rabe.
Washington Post reviewer Tom Sietsema strongly recommends Malgudi (2400 Wisconsin Ave.), the South Indian restaurant that recently took the place of Heritage Asia Thai Bistro. “Malgudi makes some of the most intriguing vegetarian food this side of the Rasika restaurants across town,” he writes.
From the April 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
On February 20, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board cancelled the liquor license for Margarita’s Restaurant (formerly at 2317 Wisconsin, the current home of Sprig & Sprout). The licensee, Maria Villalta, closed Margarita’s several years ago. Lately, she has tried unsuccessfully to find a new location for her restaurant or a buyer for her license.
Under Glover Park’s liquor license moratorium, up to 14 restaurants in the neighborhood are allowed to have full-service restaurant (CR) licenses. At press time, the former Margarita’s license was one of two Glover Park CR licenses that were unused and unapplied-for, according to an Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration spokesman.
The closing of Mayfair & Pine (2218 Wisconsin Ave.) and Kavanagh’s Pizza Pub (2400 Wisconsin Ave.) has left two more Glover Park CR licenses idle, though the Kavanagh’s license will soon be put to use at Arcuri, a trattoria slated to open in late April. The liquor license for JP’s Night Club (2412 Wisconsin Ave.), expected to reopen in May, is a nightclub (CN) license.
Kavanagh’s Pizza Pub (2400 Wisconsin Ave.) closed in late January. “We are truly grateful for all of the support we have received from our customers, many of whom have become good friends,” owners Lee Abbott and Kevin McFillin wrote in a farewell letter. “We wish our successors all the best! Thank you for a great 8 1/2 years!
The ground-floor restaurant was sold to a group of four local friends who plan to reopen in mid-April as Arcuri, a trattoria featuring brick oven pizza, antipasti, and other Italian fare. The décor will be “rustic with an industrial city feel,” co-owner Adam Hiltebeitel tells us. The restaurant’s chef will be co-owner Richard Jones, formerly of 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church and Locanda Verde in TriBeCa.
The second-floor space below Heritage India (2400 Wisconsin Ave.)—until recently home of Heritage Asia Thai Bistro—reopens February 19 as Malgudi, a café featuring South Indian cuisine. “Malgudi is inspired by the work of renowned Indian novelist R.K. Narayan,” states a press release from restaurateurs Sanjeev and Mitul Tuli, who also own Heritage India. “Malgudi is a fictional town somewhere in South India located on the shores of the fictional river Sarayu.” The new menu features dishes spiced with cardamom, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and flavored with coconuts, tamarind, and chili peppers. The full menu is available here.
