The waterfront space at South Lakes Village Center has been vacant since the Lakeside Inn closed last October after 22 years. Construction crews gutted the space about two months ago.
Ryan Tracy — a Red’s Table owner, along with his brothers Matt and Pat — said the Fairfax County permitting process is taking longer than anticipated.
“We hope to start construction in the month of August,” he said. “If that happens, we hope to be open by November/December.”
The Tracy brothers are planning “American cuisine with fresh, local products, oysters, good sandwiches, as well as local craft beer and local wines,” Ryan Tracy said earlier this year. There will be an open kitchen and additional outdoor seating, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Lake Thoreau.
