Despite being tucked around the back of an office building at 8500 Leesburg Pike, Italian Gardens is already a popular local lunch spot.
But new plans to bring beer and wine to the store could make it a go-to spot for a midday drink.
The restaurant isn’t visible from the main street, but is frequently crowded around lunch. The relatively inexpensive menu offers a variety of subs, wraps and pizzas.
Italian Gardens filed an ABC permit last November. If the permit is approved, an employee at the restaurant said the current plans are to add wine and beer to the menu and hopefully develop a system to deliver beers like any other food delivery.
The ABC status is listed as pending, with no word yet on when beer delivery could start up.
