Top Design Firm Will Turn Reston Paolo’s Into Neyla

Fiola Mare Restaurant by Fabio TrabocchiCapital Restaurant Concepts says it has hired HapstakDemetriou+, a top Washington, DC, restaurant architecture and design firm, to remodel Paolo’s Ristorante at Reston Town Center into the new Neyla Mediterranean Bistro.

“The creative and talented team of HapstakDemetriou (is) designing a casual, elegant ambience, while chef Erich von Gheren an authentic Eastern Mediterranean menu,” Neyla General Manager Souheil Moussedik, wrote on Paolo’s Facebook page on Monday.

Moussedik said he hopes Neyla will be open at Reston Town Center in early May.

Paolo’s closed last week after 24 years at Reston Town Center. The Georgetown location remains open.

The changes are part of a reworking at Capital Restaurant Concepts, which owns Paolo’s as well as other Washington-area restaurants such as J. Paul’s and Georgia Brown’s. It also owned the former Neyla, which was located in Georgetown before closing in 2014.

Some of HapstackDemetriou’s other clients include Rose’s Luxury, Brasserie Beck, Fiola Mare and Zaytinya in D.C. and Gypsy Soul in the Mosaic District.
