Clarendon to get real restaurant - Cheesecake Factory fears for its life

If you frequent Clarendon Blvd in Arlington as much as I do, you've been wondering over the past few months what the new restaurant just east of the metro stop is going to be. Turns out that Restaurant 3, a new restaurant from the folks that brought us Whitlow's on Wilson will be moving in.

Offering "American cuisine in an upscale setting", local Executive Chef Brian Robinson of such restaurants as Whitlow's and Georgia Browns will feature such dishes as Southern Fried Catfish and Malasada style doughnuts with milk chocolate dipping sauce.

Jill has already labeled this menu as "uninspired", but I'm hoping that Greg Cahill Jonathan Williams and their knowledge of the restaurant scene in the area will result in a quality restaurant that provides a quality alternative to the Cheesecake Factory and La Tasca across the street.
