Local Flavor: Sanford House Restaurant506

By Donna Long

Tucked in Arlington’s historic downtown and part of one of the city’s most romantic B&Bs is Restaurant506, which emanates a casual elegance with its white table linens and perfectly attired waitstaff where you can also still wear your fancy jeans.


Established in 2013, Restaurant506 prepares some of the most delectable American-styled cuisine that I have had the pleasure of eating. The menu is planned based on seasonal availability of local ingredients. For those with dietary restrictions like dairy allergy or gluten intolerance, Restaurant506 pays close attention ensuring that the modified meal is as delicious and plated as beautiful as other meals. If you have ever ordered a meal with a dietary restriction you know the presentation has a tendency to be left off the plate along with the restrictions. As a food writer, I have had many disappointments. I have been to Restaurant506 many times, and have yet to be disappointed.
