‘Uncommon Luncheonette’ Coming to Clarendon

A new restaurant with a unique name is coming to Clarendon.

“Uncommon Luncheonette” filed yesterday for a building permit at 1028 N. Garfield Street. That’s the former location of Riverside Hot Pot, which closed last fall after about a year in business, and Bowl’d, which closed in 2017 after about two years.

The permit application seeks permission to make interior alterations but gives no clues as to what the restaurant will serve. There is nothing by the name “Uncommon Luncheonette” that could be found via search engine or social media.

An Virginia LLC by that name was formed last week, however. The address and attorney for the newly-formed company match that of Pentagon City restaurant Epic Smokehouse, which opened in 2012, though it’s unclear whether the two are connected. The owners of Epic Smokehouse could not be immediately reached for comment.
