Assembly makes a splash on the Arlington restaurant scene, right from the heart of Rosslyn
The eclectic new food hall is your next go-to spot for breakfast, happy hour & everything in between
From the moment you hop off the Metro in the morning until it’s time for dinner and drinks, Assembly is a resting place and watering hole for any moment in the day. Located inside the newly redeveloped Rosslyn City Center at 1700 N Moore St, the 29,000-square-foot space boasts multiple private dining rooms, an outdoor terrace and two full-service bars—not to mention the dining options. Rosslyn’s Assembly is a cumulative food experience that highlights cultures from around the world.

Pulling six concepts into one comprehensive menu, patrons order at their table using a QR code and table numbering system. The concepts include Big Day Coffee, for morning pick-me-ups like coffee and pastries; GiGi’s Greens & Grains, for salads and smoothies; Sammy’s Pickles, for deli sandwiches and subs, Great Lakes Diner, for American-style fare; Charo’s Tacos, for unique twists on the classic taqueria; and Beng Beng Asian Street Food, for delicious bites that celebrate street food culture.
There’s also Pntry, a gourmet grocery with grab-and-go options and street level access off the Metro entrance, and Fog Point Oyster Bar, a full-service seafood restaurant that’s perfect for an upscale happy hour and dinner. With hours that vary by concept, Assembly is an environment that’s designed to be enjoyed for socializing, dining and working all day long.

The unveiling of Assembly is the final piece of the puzzle for Rosslyn City Center, which has been an ongoing project from locally based American Real Estate Partners (AREP). AREP and DMK Restaurants partnered on this space, which is the focal point of the newly revitalized Rosslyn City Center—AREP’s $35 million renovation of the mixed-use building (formerly Rosslyn Metro Center). The building is also home to a new Gold’s Gym location, with 40,000 square-feet of modernized indoor and outdoor space, as well as a Chase Bank branch, a Panera Bread and the longtime Rosslyn Metro Barber Shop.
Of the new food hall, Rosslyn BID President Mary-Claire Burick says it's here at just the right time. "As we think about what the return to work will look like in the future, Assembly has arrived at the perfect time. It has options if you're coming back into the office, if you need somewhere to work remotely or a meeting space, and especially if you're looking to reconnect with coworkers socially." She added, "It really has it all."

With all the public and private spaces available, Assembly is a destination and experience for anyone looking to connect (or disconnect) over mouthwatering food and drinks. From your morning coffee, to happy hour with friends and coworkers, Assembly has the space and variety to meet your needs. As we work toward safely welcoming people back into the neighborhood through various initiatives and resources, we at the BID are so excited to see the vision behind Assembly come to fruition. Welcome to Rosslyn!
