Update at 2:15 p.m. — Management is hinting that the public may be able to stop by “soft-opening” events this weekend. One such event is taking place tonight — they’re advising people to stop by after 10:00 p.m.
The ink still damp on the ABC permit that arrived this morning, management at Lyon Hall (3100 Washington Boulevard) is hard at work preparing to open to the public on Tuesday. A small armada of beer and wine vendors will start delivering their wares today.
It’s the most highly-anticipated restaurant opening in recent memory in Arlington. This site alone has received more than 1,100 hits from people who searched for “Lyon Hall” on Google.
Opening in a historic property in Clarendon that most recently housed Dan Kain Trophies (there are trophies used as decorative items throughout the restaurant), Lyon Hall is a Euro-style brasserie with a heavy emphasis on beer, wine and charcuterie.
