A few blocks off the main drag of Clarendon, Green Pig Bistro is one of the best restaurants in Arlington. Come with a few friends, sit at one of the large communal tables, take in the smells coming from the open kitchen, and prepare for a meat-heavy meal. And make sure that meal includes the meatballs and pork shank, which will make you want to bow to the next pig you see.
