The new Rosslyn outpost of Sfoglina restaurant is now hiring, a signal that its long-awaited opening is approaching.
Signs plastered over the front windows of Sfoglina Pasta House say the Italian restaurant is “coming soon” and it’s hiring bartenders and sous chefs, among several other positions.
The restaurant is located in a 4,500 square-foot space at 1100 Wilson Blvd, the 31-story building that’s home to local TV station WJLA.
As of today (Tuesday), Sfoglina’s website says its Rosslyn location is “coming soon.” The restaurant owners did not return a request for comment on expected opening dates in time for publication.
The Rosslyn pasta house will be a sister to the flagship Sfoglina co-owners Maria and Fabio Trabocchi opened in D.C.’s Van Ness neighborhood in 2016. The pair also manages several other local culinary hotspots including another Sfoglina in downtown D.C., as well as Fiola, Fiola Mare and Del Mar.
Fabio Trabocchi said in May that opening a location outside of D.C. was “such an exciting opportunity, and we’re delighted to be a part of this vibrant and growing community, while further strengthening our love for the craft of pasta-making.”
At the time, the Trabocchis said they expected to open by the end of 2018, or in early 2019.
