Company Says BRB Restaurant Will Be Replaced by New ‘Concept’

Burger restaurant BRB (Be Right Burger) has closed in Reston Town Center, but the space is scheduled for new life.

According to its website, Pheast Food Group has taken over the management of several restaurants including Be Right Burger and will be “updating those concepts in 2017.” Signage posted on the shuttered Reston Town Center eatery advertises “another exciting concept coming soon.”

The changes are part of a reorganization within Reston-based parent company Thompson Hospitality, according to Pheast’s website:

“Funded by Thompson Hospitality, the largest minority-owned hospitality company in the country, Pheast Food Group was created to develop new innovative restaurant concepts and will oversee the management of the company’s brands — The American Tap Room, Austin Grill, Willie T’s Lobster Shack, Pizza Studio and Be Right Burger.”

The American Tap Room also has a Reston Town Center location.

Late last year, Pheast turned two former locations of Tex-Mex restaurant Austin Grill — in Alexandria and Silver Spring, Maryland — into Southern-style restaurants under the name Hen Quarter.

BRB opened in Reston Town Center in the summer of 2011. Prior to that, the building (1820 Discovery St.) housed a Marvelous Market deli, also owned by Thompson Hospitality.

The restaurant also has a location at Dulles International Airport.
