As reported first here on Red Brick Town, Carluccio’s, the UK-based restaurant group, was opening its first restaurant in the U.S.A. right here in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia at 100 King Street. 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.
We have heard from several sources that Carluccio’s Restaurant and Market will be opening the first week of June. There is no official date yet. As soon as we hear something firm, as always, our readers will be the first to know.
I got to take a peek inside the new restaurant and market this week and it looks AMAZING! See these photos of the new awnings which have gone up around the building recently (above and below). You can see more photos at this link.
