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.
