‘Peruvian Brothers’ Take Over ‘The Stand’ in Crystal City

There’s a new option for grab-and-go empanadas and Inca Kola in Crystal City.

The Stand, a small food pavilion in the Crystal City Water Park which formerly hosted a rotating cast of pop-up eateries, is now a full-time location for D.C. area food truck favorite Peruvian Brothers.

The new Peruvian Brothers outpost officially opened this week. While perhaps not the best timing, given the pandemic, the stand does let customers order and pick up meals while never needing to go indoors.

Options on the menu include three types of empanadas — chicken, beef, plus spinach and cheese — as well as an Alfajor cookie and a selection of drinks.

More from a press release:

Peruvian Brothers is now open at The Stand in the Crystal City Water Park.

“We are thrilled to welcome Peruvian Brothers to the National Landing neighborhood,” said Amy Rice, Senior Vice President of Retail Leasing at JBG SMITH. “With the opening of their new location, residents will be able to support a local business and enjoy a delicious carry out meal while they get some fresh air during these challenging times.”

The Peruvian Brothers, co-founded by brothers Giuseppe and Mario Lanzone, expanded over the last seven years from operating one food truck to three food trucks, a catering company, and now brick-and-mortar concession stands throughout the region. The Peruvian Brothers’ new location at The Stand will serve authentic “Comida Criolla,” the tastiest part of their Peruvian heritage, which is rooted in Andean, Spanish, African, and Asian influences. The menu includes their renowned baked empanadas, desserts, and drinks, such as Peruvian coffee, for carry out.

“The ability to bring people together through food is incredibly important to us.  As National Landing residents ourselves, we want to serve our neighbors fresh, delicious food when they need it most,” said Giuseppe Lanzone, CEO. “We plan to bring many of the Peruvian flavors we miss most from our childhood to The Stand for others to experience, as they remind us of family and home.”

Peruvian Brothers at The Water Park, at 1601 Crystal Drive in Arlington, will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for carry out only.
