Retail real estate experts Jennifer Price, Kim Stein, and Kelley Milloy of KLNB, have brought their client Nighthawk Pizza, an exciting new concept from Alexandria-based brewery Aslin Beer Co., Scott Parker and The Wave Group, and D.C. chef Johnny Spero of Reverie to the newly rebranded Westpost at National Landing. The restaurant is scheduled to arrive in fall 2021.

“This exciting concept captures the creativity and resilience of our region’s food and beverage leaders in an unpredictable year,” says Price. “We’re seeing local restaurateurs gear up for new growth, and we’re looking forward to renewed momentum in 2021.”

Nighthawk Pizza will focus exclusively on making approachable low ABV beers, that will be reminiscent of old-world styles for the working class, with the innovation that Aslin is known for. Paired with Johnny Spero’s innovative approach towards pizza, sandwiches, and more, and The Wave Group’s ability to build brands with and through the community, the team plans to make a lasting impact in the DMV area and beyond.

“The team behind Nighthawk are thrilled to bring something special to Westpost at National Landing. We’re excited to add our experience in the Arlington bar scene to Johnny’s incredible food, and the Aslin team’s best-in-class beer-making abilities to create a new beer hall experience that pays homage to the 90’s in its design elements. Nighthawk will be a beer brand of its own, and will brew beer on-site for consumption and to-go,” says Scott Parker.

Located in the West National Landing neighborhood, west of the Potomac River, Westpost, formerly known as Pentagon Row, derives its name from both its proximity to Amazon’s new HQ2 and the nearby waterways. The neighborhood is convenient to Arlington and points south, via Rt. 1, and D.C. via 395/Metro/Rideshare.

For Federal Realty, to create a fresh vision for Westpost, formerly known as Pentagon Row, couldn’t have happened at a better time. “With the impending arrival of Amazon’s HQ2 to the newly formed National Landing, our team has set out to deliver a true destination, an outpost, if you will, for the long-time residents and the new-comers that call National Landing, and the greater Arlington area, home, work, and all things in between,” says James Milam of Federal. “Westpost is ideally located just a short walk off western campus, but a world away as far as amenities and offerings. It’s the perfect place to disconnect from the work, while staying connected with friends, great food and unique drinks, in a comfortable, relaxed environment,” Milam continues.

New additions to the neighborhood over the past year (Scott Chung’s Bun’d Up, Antonio Ferraro’s Napoli Salumeria, led by Chef Andy Clark and Wild Tiger, a partnership with Chung, and Chef Kevin Tien, formerly of Himitsu and Emilie’s and now Moon Rabbit) have delivered great buzz met with serious culinary innovation. Nighthawk Pizza compliments the current mix and offers a look into the future of Westpost at National Landing.
