Bozzelli's in Crystal City opens

The Springfield Italian deli Bozzelli's recently opened a new location much closer to Clarendon in Crystal City. Since they just opened last week, they have a limited menu that does not include their pizzas or all sandwiches. The small to-go only storefront flanks the entrance to new Concord luxury apartment building, and is sure to be come a favorite quick dining option for future residents.

Bozzelli's son was manning the register, and was good enough to honor my Groupon for $15 off the meal even though they aren't 100% operational yet. I had the steak and cheese, which was delicious. Some people think the white bread is bland, but I liked it. The steak cut fries are seasoned just write, but needed to be heated up by the time I started eating.

Parking is tight on the street, but there is a paid garage directly next to the restaurant. Its a steep $5, but you may be able to get it validated and waived by the restaurant.
