Signage is up in the windows at the future location of the restaurant, 1815 Fountain Drive. The storefront near Best Buy had been the home of a Lane Bryant clothing store before it closed last year. A permit to allow renovation by the new tenant was issued by Fairfax County last month.
Cava Mezze Grill is an offshoot of Rockville-based Cava Mezze restaurant, which has five locations in Maryland, Virginia and D.C. There are currently about two dozen Cava Mezze Grill locations nationwide, with the Reston location one of about a dozen more planning to open soon. There are already several locations elsewhere in Northern Virginia, including in Tysons, Vienna and Merrifield’s Mosaic District.
The eatery is described as “a fast-casual spin-off” that “serves fresh, healthful and savor-worthy meals.”
A request for information about an opening date for the restaurant has not been answered at this time.
