Red’s Table, the locally owned restaurant slated to open soon at South Lakes Village Center, will have to delay its opening by several months after a structural problem was discovered well into the renovation process, co-owner Ryan Tracy said.
Crews have been busy for months knocking the Lakeside Inn space down to the studs to renovate the Red’s Table space.
Tracy said the restaurant was hoping to open in March. Now it looks like it will be more like June. Tracy, who owns the restaurant with brothers Pat and Matt Tracy, all of whom grew up nearby — said the hiring process is on hold for now. The Tracys have hired well-known D.C. chef Adam Stein to oversee the kitchen.
“Due to the existing conditions at our space, the team at Red’s Table encountered an issue that will take significant time to resolve,” Tracy said on Monday. “Our contractor, K3, and the landlord are currently working hard to correct this issue.
“Red’s Table was prepared to open in March and we now look forward to opening this summer. Our hiring process has been put on hold until we are closer to the new opening date. However, anyone who is interested in becoming part of our growing team can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We remain extremely excited to open our doors to the Reston community.”
Ryan Tracy said the outdoor sign, which has been in place for several months, may have to come down while the repairs happen.
