Alexandria’s Indian and Nepalese restaurant Namaste is opening a location in Pentagon Row next spring, bringing Arlington shoppers a new spot to fuel up on flavored curries and tandoor cooking.

Chef Nabin Paudel, who also operates two Namaste locations in the Old Town area, will open a third inside the Arlington shopping center next spring that will bear a new name: Namaste Everest.

His popular momo dumplings will be imported over, as well as chicken tandoori, biryani, chicken makhani, and new Nepalese items. Drinkers can expect a full service bar with cocktails, beer, and wine.

Federal Realty Investment’s open air complex houses a slew of dining options, including Basic Burger, Bonefish Grill, new pop-up Gorilla Taco, Lebanese Taverna, and Nando’s Peri Peri.
