A Taste of DC in VA Event Tuesday January 12th
Guys, I know you have given so much already, but this is a direct request for support for an event idea I thought of last night and, with some amazing people, implemented today. I apologize for the quick turnaround ask (by Saturday) and substantial commitment request of $800 for the package.
“A Taste of DC in VA” this Tuesday January 12th. Virginia is open and DC is closed for indoor dining. We in VA need to help DC Chefs with immediate and definitive results (money). The format for the event is this… come pick up a package ($800 and serves 6) containing a ready to reheat main dish from each of the following Chefs: James Beard Winner Tom Constantino Cunanan, Amy Brandwein of Centrolina and Piccolina, Ryan Ratino of Bresca and Jont D.C., Matt Baker of Gravitas Dc, Johnny Spero of Reverie Restaurant, John MacPherson of Three Blacksmiths (repping VA with me) and Clarity. The package also contains 3 bottles of wine and 3 desserts as well, so you can share the cost and the 7 main dishes with two other couples. I will distribute the proceeds to the DC Chefs, who will in turn keep some for their staffs and distribute to other DC Chefs in their communities and networks. You will also receive a link to a Zoom Q/A later Tuesday evening with the Chefs. Email jon@clarityvienna.com to support.

*Patio or indoor dining (inside with curtains to separate tables). DINNER HOURS 3PM-9PM TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE WARMEST PART OF THE DAYS / EVENINGS. To make a reservation INSIDE either click here, call or text 703-539-8400, or email reservations@clarityvienna.com. Note your preference for outside or inside in your request. We have some heaters and fire pits outside, but they are spread out between the tables. Please dress accordingly.

*Raid Your Wine Cellar (and Spirit Cabinet) Dinners at Your Home (minimum 8, maximum 12) – Taking a very successful concept from the past four years in my private rooms and moving to your homes. Guests raid their own stocked wine cellars for eight wines, and I create a paired tasting menu. The groups will be split into socially distanced slips for four guests. Email me at jon@clarityvienna.com to schedule.

Our Menus

A Note on Allergies – Please don’t feel like “that person” – allergies and dietary restrictions are a part of life.  Please give us as much information as possible, as well as some time to adjust and create. We will tell you exactly what can and can’t be done in the kitchen safely, as we handle over 175 products a day.

Our Lunch & Dinner Menus Change Daily and the other menus change frequently so these menus are samples of our style of cuisine – Chef Owner Jon Krinn

Walk-in Guests:

If you want to hang out with us on a whim, come on in! If we can’t get you a table in the dining room, which is often the case in prime time, we serve the full menu at the bar and Chef Jon Krinn’s Kitchen Counter – a cooking show in real time! You might have to wait for some seats to open up, but the turn time is normally not toooo long.

Dinner:  reservations highly recommended, but walking in works too (see info above).

Mon – Thurs: 3pm – 9pm
Fri – Sat: 3pm – 9 pm
Sun: 3pm – 9pm

patio dining during good weather

Lunch:  reservations or walking in is welcome and accommodated. Tuesday – Friday: 11:30am – 2pm, remaining open throughout the afternoon for open seating, snacks and light custom lunch.


Our online reservation system is Seat Me. Also, you can call or text us at 703-539-8400 with your request. We use “google voice message to text app” response system, which is actually more efficient than being put on hold. Please don’t hang up – listen to our entire 20 second message, then leave a clear voice message with your reservation request or ask us to call you back if you are on a landline. We see all messages, as texts, in real time and will text respond within 10 minutes. We monitor messages between the hours of 10:00am – 9:00pm Monday through Friday and 11:00am – 9:00pm Saturday and Sunday. Thank you!

A note on parking….

Parking in front of Clarity fills up fast, but we have another parking lot just steps away. Take a left from East St onto Church St and take another quick left (200 ft) at the Clarity sign into the lot. Park, walk across the bridge straight into the building lobby door and into Clarity.



“Don’t let the bubble burst” Chef Owner Jon Krinn
