Pupatella Founder: No Word Yet on Opening of Reston Location

As state and local officials work to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, uncertainty remains on when new restaurants planned in Reston and Herndon will open.

That includes Pupatella, an award-winning Neopolitan pizzeria, which previously planned to open at 1821 Wiehle Avenue in early 2020.

Although the McDonald’s in that fast food complex, which is known as McTacoHut, recently underwent renovations, Pupatella Founding Partner Michael Berger tells Reston Now it would be hard to offer an anticipated opening date.

The company hopes to begin construction once it receives a building permit from the county.

“We are currently in the final stages of obtaining our building permit from Fairfax County,” Berger said.

The building no longer bears the name of Pizza Hut, which closed late last year after its lease ended.

“We are thrilled to be joining the Reston community and plan to open as quickly as we are able,” Berger said.
