As the spring weather really takes root here in Arlington, you’re probably looking for places to enjoy the warmer fresh air with a drink in hand. Northside Social near our Arlington luxury apartments should be at the top of your list. Part coffeehouse, part wine bar, the multifaceted local spot boasts a spacious sidewalk patio shaded by large umbrellas during the date and set aglow by twinkling lights during the evening hours.
If you have some time in the morning, snag a table and sip on an iced coffee or ice blueberry rooibos tea with a breakfast sandwich or a cranberry-ginger scone. If you’re stopping in after work, grab a glass of wine and share plates of cheese and charcuterie with friends. Then for the main course, dig into a fresh sandwich or salad. The kitchen puts an upscale twist on even its simplest dishes. The BLT, for instance, features crispy house-made bacon with juicy local tomatoes, baby greens, and a freshly made basil aioli, all tucked inside of golden-brown nine-grain toast. If you prefer a meat-free option, try the brown rice and chickpea bowl loaded with feta, sunflower seeds, kale pesto, and a poached farm-fresh egg.
