Fill This Space: Former Melting Pot Location

Former Melting Pot location on Commerce Park/File photoIt’s been three years since The Melting Pot closed down its location at 11400 Commerce Park Dr. and moved to Plaza America.

The space on the ground floor of an office building still sits empty.

The good news: That location is could not be closer to commuters who use the Wiehle-Reston East Metro stop. Located just steps from the South entrance of the Metro, is another restaurant chose to open there it could be the closest place to get a beer when you stepped off the train.

The bad news: The parking lot of access Commerce Park Drive is now mostly via key card, which might make it difficult for those who wanted to drive there.
