A new lobster roll eatery is rolling into Shirlington

A new lobster roll restaurant is coming to Shirlington.

Annapolis-based Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls is set to open its third Virginia location in the Village of Shirlington at 4017 Campbell Avenue. Signs recently went up on the windows of the storefront, in the space formerly occupied by Nirvana Reflexology Spa.

“The 1,334 square-foot restaurant will feature a variety of authentic Maine fare including lobster roll options with mounds of lobster meat sustainably sourced from the waters of Maine on a grilled, buttery split-top roll,” says a press release from Federal Realty Investment Trust (FRIT), which owns the Village of Shirlington development. “Along with six varieties of rolls, customers will find items like lobster mac and cheese, creamy lobster bisque, authentic New England clam chowder and more.”

ARLnow asked FRIT about an estimated opening date, but has yet to hear back as of publication.

Over the last 18 months, the lobster roll eatery has started expanding across the D.C. area. That includes locations opening in Dupont Circle, Georgetown, and Foggy Bottom. In 2018, the restaurant opened at Reston Town Center as well. Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls also has restaurants in Delaware, Florida, Minnesota, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas.

The menu consists of an assortment of lobster rolls, lobster grilled cheese, and lobster bisque. For those that are not into the red crustracien, there’s also clam chowder and shrimp rolls.

In recent weeks, there have been several other comings and goings in Shirlington. Both Bearded Goat Barber and popular D.C.-based Chinese and Korean eatery CHIKO opened in early November. Two weeks ago, ARLnow reported that Thai ice cream shop I-CE-NY has closed. Additionally, Astro Beer Hall is now set to open in the former Capitol City Brewing Co. space next summer.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3­-7.

Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.

Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.

Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
