Arlington lunch takeout
I will be visiting friends in Arlington for an afternoon over the holidays. Because of illness, we can't take my friends out for lunch, so I offered to bring lunch to their house. Since I'm driving from Philly, I don't want to tote food to Arlington. So, is there a good place between the beltway and Arlington (our destination is Second Street North) where I could buy a nice takout lunch for four people? I guess I'm thinking of sandwiches with all the fixins' or an entree entree or something a little fancy. Thanks.
the Italian Store at the intersection of Spout Run Parkway and 29 in Arlington is a good place for sandwiches and sides and just off I-66.
Also, in Clarendon, Liberty Tavern does a nice take-away business and you can check out their menu online. They can tell you which selections are better travelers than others.
From what Google maps tell me, Ravi Kabob on Glebe would be an excellent choice near to your destination - and I know that their food travels well up to at least 15 miles away.
Thai Square would also do the trick. Or going from Gonzocook's idea, get the chicken from Caribbean Grill which has such a nicer selection of sides.
