Updated: The entire Cosi chain filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday. Also, about half of the chain’s stores, including a branch in Arlington, closed this week.

Cosi at Reston Town Center has closed its doors. The restaurant’s last day in business at 11909 Democracy Dr. was Monday.

Manager John Paul said the store was at the end of its lease and a new lease was going to be more expensive.

No word yet on a new tenant for the space.

    Tall Oaks: coming to a Town Center near you.

    The first paid parking casualty. Look for more early next year.

      Not the first.

    The Reston Clown Center. Seriously, who goes there anyways? Paid parking sham is going to hurt. Northern Virginia is on a steady decline.

      Hardly. RTC is shooting themselves in the foot, but the Tyson’s area shows no signs of slowing down.

      • Visionary

        The Reston Town Center is not in Tyson’s. Also, the growing population IS the problem. Its not like were adding more quality people, just more people.

          Uh, I know that RTC is not in Tyson’s. The point is that the Tyson’s area is growing, and possibly sapping a lot of RTC’s customer base. As for “quality people”, that’s a clumsy euphemism for people who aren’t of your socioeconomic class and/or race. Is that what you’re trying to say?

    The world’s most confusing ordering system at that place. Although I only went there once, I didn’t think ordering food in a restaurant had a learning curve.

  • Thanks a lot, Mr. Johnston.

    Hey, that’s one way to free up more parking… for commuters 😉

    “. . . a new lease was going to be more expensive.”

    I guess they failed their “elite” check.

    There last Thursday morning, and it was almost empty, even with Starbucks under renovation.

    I love cosi and have gone there regularly for 5-6 years. Please come to North Point or Plaza America–anywhere! Reston needs Cosi!

  • David

    Cosi actually filed for bankruptcy this morning. It had nothing to do with the paid parking situation.

    • Karen Goff

      Yes, that has been added to the story. At the time, Tuesday, that is the info we had from the manager.
