Domaso Scales Back, Domasoteca Closes

This just in from Kimpton's Hotel Palomar in Arlington: The hotel's restaurant Domaso is scaling back and will no longer be open for lunch and dinner on weekends.

Meanwhile, Domasoteca, the wine shop on the hotel's ground floor, will close May 30. That means the shop is clearing out its inventory at deep discounts: 20 percent off all bottles, 30 percent off mixed half cases, and 40 percent off mixed full cases.

Domaso's new operating schedule includes breakfast, lunch and dinner in the dining room Monday through Friday, with only breakfast service and bar dining on weekends.

A statement from the hotel details a few other changes: "Based on the increasing success of its lounge and in response to clientele for a more casual dining experience, the lunch and dinner menus will be updated significantly, and the bar will serve an expanded selection of signature cocktails and lounge menu items. While the restaurant will remain modern Italian in concept, the menus will change to meet the current economic conditions of the market, and will feature an expanded offering of pastas, sandwiches, and soup selections."
