Historic and welcoming

Langston Boulevard has what Arlington’s known for: flavor!

If life is a highway, this stretch is a path to glorious great taste. Fulfill all your pie-in-sky dreams at Livin’ the Pie Life. Step up to the counter at The Italian Store and enjoy a classic sub sandwich along with products imported from Italy. Get authentic German fresh-baked goods at Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe which also sells imported German jams and grocery items. Or try the quaint unassuming café La Cote D'Or for a romantic French dinner.

OK, so it’s not really a “highway” but Langston Boulevard is the urban main street connecting Arlington’s neighborhoods between East Falls Church Metro station at the west end and Rosslyn Metro at the east end. Jump on a Metrobus or Arlington ART bus and connect with Metro at either end. Explore a commercial corridor blending neighborhoods with pockets of beloved Arlington restaurants and unique shops.

Look for the colorful awnings and enjoy friendly personal service, top quality family-owned shops and lively restaurants at Lee Heights Shops. Among Lee Heights’ unique shops you can:

Metro 29 Diner
Metro 29 Diner
  • Get cake and croissants at Pastries by Randolph or pick up a unique selection of clothing and gifts at family-owned Lemoncello Boutique.
  • Meander through the many sections of Barstons Child’s Play, a family-owned toy store.

At the Lee-Harrison Shopping Center, find not-your-average Chinese restaurant Peter Chang; cozy local sushi restaurant Sushi-Zen; Southern California Mexican cuisine at Taqueria el Poblano; and the sweet temptation of made-to-order Duck Donuts.

Langston Boulevard has other renowned Arlington favorites like Lebanese Taverna Market, District Taco and Metro 29 Diner. Find out what we mean when we say Arlington has local flavor!
