FOOD NEWS: New Thai Restaurant Comes to Mosaic, Plaka Grill Delayed & Free Donuts Friday



Plaka Grill Inches Closer to Opening on W. Broad

The Falls Church location of Plaka Grill now looks to open sometime this month, says the restaurant’s Cathy Drosos.

Initially planned to open early this year, several delays have pushed back the Little City debut of the Greek cafe coming to the former Cosi space on W. Broad St.

Drosos tells the News-Press that final trade inspections were scheduled at the end of May and that only a few more hurdles have to be cleared until the doors can finally open.

“Getting closer,” she says.

Get Free Doughnuts Friday in Falls Church

National Doughnut Day (yes, that’s a thing) is this Friday and two Falls Church area restaurants are serving up free treats in celebration.

Dunkin’ Donuts is offering a free doughnut to customers with purchase of a beverage at its two F.C. locations on Annandale Rd. and Arlington Blvd.

Also hooking up a freebie, Pizzeria Orso, which in concert with chef Bertrand Chemel’s birthday, is offering a free Nutella doughnut to all guests who mention the promo code “Happy Birthday Chef” to their servers while ordering.

Both Orso and Dunkin’ Donuts free doughnut promotion are available while supplies last only on Friday, June 5.

National Doughnut Day is celebrated annually on the first Friday of June and was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
