Pupatella Named Best Pizza in Virginia

by ARLnow.com

It is really really good. Really.

Pupatella (photo via Google Maps)Pupatella is getting accolades for its Neapolitan style pizzas. A recently released list puts it at the top, compared to all other pizza joints in the state.

FlipKey.com, a TripAdvisor company, put together a list of “Best Pizza Worth Traveling For” and chose one pizza place for each of the 50 states. Arlington’s own Pupatella received the honors for Virginia.

A representative for FlipKey said the winners were chosen based on market research and traveler feedback.

The full list of the best pizza worth traveling for in each state is available online.

Last year, Pupatella won another ABBIE for being named the best pizza place in Arlington, and also made the Washington Post’s list of “40 dishes Washingtonians shouldn’t live without in 2013.”

Art Installation Lights Up Route 50 at Courthouse

Two recently completed bridges along Route 50 — at 10th Street N. and N. Courthouse Road — now look more colorful, thanks to a public art installation. But if you want to catch a glimpse of the art in its full glory, you’ll have to wait until it’s dark.

Arlington Cultural Affairs partnered with VDOT on both the custom-designed concrete panels on the sides of the road and metal grillwork on the overpasses. Both were the work of artist Vicki Scuri, who also designed an LED light show that backlights the grillwork at night.

The light display is programmed as a 15 minute loop that fades and gradually transitions between sets of colors. The show contains intentional sequences and transitions with a “range of non-highway colors” that suggest stained glass, Scuri said. The new light programming went live Friday night.

“The lighting, the pattern elements and the landscape are site specific responses to inform place, creating a signature landmark promoting wayfinding for the Arlington entries at Courthouse Street [sic] and 10th Street,” said Scuri, adding that she designed the art installations to reflect Arlington’s “classical architecture.” She said wanted to make a clear entry to Arlington that complemented the county’s lively, refined streetscapes.

Scuri was in Arlington last week to collaborate with the VDOT contract lighting designer and Arlington’s Department of Transportation to balance the artist’s creative vision with practicality and safety for those areas. They worked on the color and intensity of the lighting, among other things.

“This is a collective effort to provide both beauty and safety. I think we’ve done it,” said Scuri. “The entire project is a response to the site, to the native landscape and to the classical ornamentation of Arlington and that of Washington, D.C.”

Yelp Wanted: Bistro Rewards Guests for Writing Negative Yelp Reviews

This is better than funny amazon reviews.

A restaurant in Richmond, Calif. is encouraging its customers to leave poor reviews on its Yelp page. While other restaurants are in a tizzy over Yelp possibly hiding positive reviews and highlighting negative ones, Botto Bistro is actually rewarding customers for writing one-star reviews by offering a discount of 25 percent off and chance to win a cooking class. The Richmond Standard points out that the restaurant's Yelp page is filled with "confusing one-star reviews, making it quite difficult for potential patrons to know whether any negative review is honest."

According to Inside Scoop SF, Botto Bistro is on a "mission to be the worst-rated restaurant in the Bay Area." The restaurant's website explains that the owners are doing this to prove that a "low score and bad reviews don't impact us and any other successful restaurant." In an FAQ section on the site, the owners note that they are not worried that bad reviews on Yelp will impact their business: "The day that we think that reviews on Yelp are the key for our successful business, is the day we should change business." Chef and co-owner Davide Cerrentini tells ISSF that "that business has increased since he began waging this campaign against Yelp."

While Botto Bistro may be the first restaurant encouraging negative Yelp reviews, it is far from the first to fight back against the influence of the review site. A bar near Boston recently poked fun at a one-star review left on the site by quoting it at the the bottom of its receipts. In New Mexico, a food truck fired back at a poor review with a clever song featuring the ukelele. See some of hilarious one-star Yelp reviews for Botto Bistro below:

Expansion Wire: Oklahoma Joe's Bar-B-Que Eyes Washington

by Missy Frederick
ereed

Oh I hope it's as good as in KC. The original one is in a gas station--the one jay and I always go to.

oklahomajoes.jpgOne of the country's iconic barbecue joints has D.C. in its sights for expansion.

A report in the Kansas City Star says that the founders of Oklahoma Joe's Bar-B-Que are cutting ties. Two of them will continue to operate a restaurant in Kansas City under the name Joe's Kansas City. But the other founder will expand the brand under its original name. From the article:

Now the other co-founder, Joe Davidson, said he will open another Oklahoma Joe's in Tulsa in 2015, as well as two restaurants in Washington, D.C. He also wants to open a facility in the Tulsa area so he can ship his Oklahoma Joe's barbecue throughout the U.S.

A spokesman for the company told Eater they plan to make an announcement in a few weeks with more details about their plans, but did not have further information to share.

Oklahoma Joe's opened its original location in 1996. It has been given such accolades as "The Manliest Restaurant in America" from Men's Health and the "Best Ribs in America" from U.S.A. Today. Even president Barack Obama has tried the barbecue there.
