The much beloved Anthony’s Restaurant, a long-time institution in Falls Church that closed June 2, is moving to the shopping center being developed by Bill Page Honda on Annandale Road at the Route 50 intersection.
Anthony’s signed a “letter of intent” to relocate to that property, confirmed Anthony’s General Manager Pete Zoutis June 22, who was reached at the Anthony’s in Manassas. The restaurant will be next to a BB&T Bank.
Zoutis said the new restaurant could open as early as September. “The menu will be the same. The prices most likely will be the same,” he said, although he acknowledged that could change in the future. The restaurant offers traditional Italian entrees, pasta, subs, and pizza.
Anthony’s opened on Broad Street in Falls Church 41 years ago. It closed to make way for a new development to include a Harris Teeter’s grocery store.
