Jinya Ramen Bar looks like it’s back on with its plans to fill an empty Reston Town Center spot.
Back in December, the Japanese ramen restaurant chain posted on its website that it was “coming soon” to 11964 Market Street. Then in early January, a reader pointed out that the Reston location disappeared from the website.
An employee at the parent company of the Jinya brand told Reston Now that nothing had been finalized yet on the Reston Town Center location and that she wasn’t sure why the Reston address was posted on the website.
Fast forward two months later, and Jinya has the same address back up on its website and listed as “coming soon.”
“Reston Town Center is rooted in authentic, home-grown experiences that create special moments for all who visit and dine here,” Stephanie Friedman, the vice president of leasing for Boston Properties, the owners of Reston Town Center, told Reston Now through a spokeswoman. “JINYA Ramen Bar is our ideal partner, bringing their local success and unique menu offering to the Reston community.”
The spot has been empty since Busara Thai Restaurant left last spring after 13 years of business there.
Jinya has nearby locations in D.C. and the Mosaic District in Merrifield.
