District Dumplings: Jun 6, 2018 - "District Dumplings Set To Open New Location in Arlington Ridge Shopping Center" by Alex Koma on arlnow.com
May 25, 2017 - "Arlington Diner Shuttered after 32 Years" by Chris Teale on arlnow.com
We stumbled upon a wine bar/cafe called Cafe Caturra this weekend. It is in the parking lot of the Giant Shopping Center on (West? South? East?) Glebe down by Four Mile Run. We were on our way to Evening Star but decided to give it a try. It has been open about a month. Interesting concept. You order food from a counter but then sit at a table with your number and get full wait service for drinks. There are about 25 wines "on tap" - and the best part - you can try ANY AND/OR ALL of them for free before you order. There is also a large bar in the center that has about 15 seats where you can order food directly from the bartender, which is what we did. Wines come in 3, 6 or 9 oz pours or you can order by the bottle. I forgot to check if they have beer too. We had tomato basil soup that was quiet decent and 2 "stone hearth" pizzas. I have to say, I was very impressed with the pizza. The bartender said they get the crust from NY. I am indifferent to where it came from but it was awesome. I normally don't eat pizza crust ends but housed this one. There are lots of options on the foods such as small plates, sandwiches, salads and cheeses. Overall, I was very impressed. Very friendly bartenders. I will definitely go back. I just googled it and it appears that it is actually a mini-chain out of Richmond area - http://www.cafecaturra.com/ Oh, and there is a fire pit out front and outdoor seating. You stare at the ABC store and the Gold's Gym but a fire pit is cool nonetheless. (I searched for a thread - sorry if this is a repeat)
