It was a gorgeous day in Alexandria, VA yesterday and my girls and I wanted to enjoy a jaunt around the water in Old Town with some curbside flavors. Luckily, our favorite pizza joint was open for business with creative bar; restaurant and carryout options for hungry folks like us! Alexandria Restaurant Partners (ARP) have reopened Lena's Wood-Fired Pizza & Tap and Mia's ItalianKitchen. The Majestic's menu is operating out of Mia's Italian Kitchen. Customers were greeted on the sidewalk with lively music, mounds of toilet paper and eager to serve attendees offering Italian specialties; dinner-to-go options and pre-mixed bottles cocktails.
Restaurants must operate with takeout and delivery only through at least May 15 under Gov. Ralph Northam's order. During the closures of Vola's Dockside Grill, Palette 22, The Majestic and Joe Theismann's Restaurant, 50 percent of gift card sales go to an employee relief fund. Any purchase of $25 or more gets a 20 percent bonus gift card. It was a relief to have access to these great eateries and enjoy the outdoor space of our beloved Old Town, Alexandria waterfront. Masks, hand sanitizer and all we soaked up the sun, the wind and brave souls supporting these local stores and giving us all hope that this will soon end. We're counting down the days until we can eat our pizza barside with a cuppa anyting Italian. Until then, my friends, let's do enjoy life curbside.
