It’s time to say farewell to Arlington’s Tallula and EatBar. After a ten-year run, the Neighborhood Restaurant Group announced plans to close the modern American restaurant and adjoining watering hole on October 26, due to an inability to reach an amenable lease renewal with their landlord.
The silver lining: NRG principal Michael Babin plans to open another restaurant with current chef Rob Rubba. Though a permanent location has yet to be determined, a release from the group says that the eatery “will feature a globally influenced menu” and a “formidable beverage program.”
The Neighborhood Restaurant Group has expanded significantly in Washington, with three locations of Red Apron Butchery, big 2013 debuts of Iron Gate and Bluejacket, among others, and the opening of B Side in the Mosaic District just last weekend. Stay tuned for more.
