PoP Preview – Arcuri Italian Restaurant, Soft Opening in Glover Park Next Week

2400 Wisconsin Avenue, NW

Back in January we first learned Arcuri would be taking over the Kavanagh’s Pizza Pub space in Glover Park. After extensive renovations Arcuri will be soft opening next week with a grand opening June 22nd. (Lunch service should start around the 19th of June.)

“The Arcuri name is the namesake of owner, Bryce Gerlach’s great grandfather. Rosario Antonio Arcuri was born in Nicastro Italy on January 19, 1895.”

They’ll have 14 beers on tap including Bell’s Oberon, Racer 5, Founder’s All Day, DC Brau Public, Jack’s Cider, Troegenator, Ommegang Hennepin, Victory Love, Allagash Curieux, and more in bottles and cans. They’ll have a nice selection of wines and prosecco. Ah, I almost forgot – they’ll also have house made Limoncello (I took a taste yesterday and it’s awesome.) Maybe even better (I didn’t get a chance to try it but it sounds sweet) they’ll also have frozen house Limoncello and frozen berry limoncella.

As for the menu you can expect to find Salumi, Crostino, risoto, meatballs, prosciutto wrapped cod, wood fired pork chop, pollo al daviolo, and many pizza options. I stopped by yesterday afternoon for some photos have a look:


Many more photos after the jump.

They’ll be completely redoing their outdoor patio which should seat around 25

  • Could be a good lunch spot for me. Really hoping the food turns out great.

    • We hope so. Actually, this upcoming Monday June 18th at 12:30 we want to invite you to our Mock Lunch Service. It will be a limited menu but an opportunity for you to help us shape our lunch menu. Lunch is on us. Please let me know if you can attend as space is limited.



  • The last place wasn’t bad at all, but this looks like a great improvement. I just wish that whomever owns that building would give it a facelift to take it out of the 1970s.
