We were the first outlet to tell you that Carluccio’s, the UK-based restaurant group, was opening its first restaurant in the U.S.A. right here in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. See this link as well. Carluccio’s will have authentic food from all 21 regions of Italy in the historic, Italianate building as well as cooking classes and wine tastings.
The group received their BAR approvals last year and, based on a reader tip, have now begun construction of the new restaurant in the historic space. We’ll keep you posted as construction continues. For more details on the new restaurant, click this link.
