It was named one of  “56 Greatest Old-School Pizzeria’s in America” by The Daily Meal just this year and has consistently been named one of TripAdvisor’s  “Top 101 Pizzas in America.”

For the first time outside of Connecticut and New York, 85-year-old family-friendly restaurant brand Colony Grill is bringing its famous “hot oil” bar-style pizzas to a Clarendon location (2800 Clarendon Boulevard).

“Everyone at Colony Grill is extremely excited,” said Ken Martin, the company’s chief operating officer. “During our search, we traveled to dozens of cities and states and we just kept coming back to the greater Arlington area. We absolutely fell in love.”

DC area diners will fall in love with what is now Colony Grill’s only menu offering: a one-of-a-kind, thin-crust pizza that is best served with its signature “hot oil” topping.
If they’ve had their fill of “Bar Pie,” patrons can also enjoy a “Salad Pie,” topped with hearty mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and carrots, tossed with balsamic vinaigrette. Breakfast lovers will appreciate the restaurant’s “Breakfast Pie” available exclusively on Saturdays and Sundays, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., which features a choice of bacon or sausage, egg, and cheese. Pricing ranges from $9.50 to $12.95 with options for adding additional toppings or gluten-free crust.

Another reason to check out Colony Grill’s location when it opens in Clarendon in mid-October is to pay respect to its Wall of Heroes, which will feature portraits of veterans and first responders. Guests submit these photographs to honor the WWII history of Colony Grill’s original Connecticut location, and the Arlington location will have its own Wall installed for public viewing.
