Orleans House (Rosslyn) closing

According to News Channel 8, Tom Sarris' Orleans House in Rosslyn will close in less than a month.

"The Arlington County board approved plans on Saturday to build a 600,000-square-foot, 470-foot-tall office building at 1812 North Moore Street - the space occupied by the restaurant. Owner Tom Sarris said he had no option but to sell."

I'd never call it a gourmet delight, but many of my happier memories were born over a congenial meal (and some great roast beef) there.
