The herbs have been planted on the patio, all the original artwork has been installed and the bar is fully stocked. True Food Kitchen is ready to share its health-driven cuisine with the Arlington, VA community!
The highly anticipated addition to Ballston Quarter’s booming restaurant scene is True Food Kitchen’s third location in the Washington DC metro area (other locations include on in Bethesda, MD and one in Fairfax, VA.)
Co-founded by world renowned integrative medicine expert Dr. Andrew Weil, True Food Kitchen’s thoughtfully crafted, seasonal menu is rooted in the principles of the anti-inflammatory food pyramid – emphasizing wholesome, simple ingredients with thoughtful preparations to highlight the natural health benefits and flavors of each ingredient. From nutrient-dense staples and responsibly sourced proteins to little-known superfoods, True Food Kitchen is committed to sourcing the most creative and freshest in-season ingredients.
The new hotspot has arrived just in time for spring and summer. True Food Kitchen’s Ballston Quarter location boasts an expansive, brightly colored patio that’s perfect for dining (and drinking) al fresco.
True Food Kitchen’s flavor-forward menu rotates seasonally to allow guests to experience the season’s most delicious and nutrient-dense produce at the peak of its freshness and flavor. Executive Chef Richard Collins opened the new Arlington location with the Spring menu that includes a seasonal showcase of organic produce and fresh ingredients with dishes like: Green Asparagus Starter featuring house-made lemon almond ricotta; Seared Chicken Satay complemented with pumpkin seed salsa, Spinach & Mushroom Pizza; Cauliflower Polenta topped with asparagus, snow pea, and yellow squash; Korean Noodle Bowl; and a new seasonal dessert, the Key Lime Mousse.
Signature favorites like the Edamame Dumplings, Grass-fed Steak Tacos and the Inside Out Quinoa Burgeralso appear on the menu. True Food Kitchen is dedicated to accommodating the food preferences and restrictions of its guests; many of the brand’s delicious dishes are appropriate for a vegan, vegetarian and/or gluten-friendly lifestyle.
The restaurant’s scratch bar serves freshly pressed natural beverages including a selection of organic teas, refreshers like the Kale Aid and Hangover RX, and handcrafted cocktails such as the Basil Cucumber Collins, Cherry Bourbon Sour, Farmers Market Sangria and Strawberry Rhubarb Margherita.
Located directly adjacent to Ballston Quarter’s tiered courtyard (which features a small playground,) True Food Kitchen is sure to be a favorite for families while the kids are on summer break.
The Kids Menu at the award-winning restaurant is wholesome enough to please parents and tasty enough to keep even the pickiest of little eaters happy. Kids can choose from the Mozzarella & Organic Tomato Pizza, Almond Butter, Banana & Apple Sandwich, Chicken Teriyaki Bowl and Grass-fed Burger.
