Clyde’s in Reston Town Center is closing after 31 years

After 31 years of business, Clyde’s of Reston is closing its doors.

In an announcement yesterday, Clyde’s Restaurant Group said the Reston Town Center will close on May 21, bringing an end to a business that has been a part of Reston’s urban core for decades.

CRG’s president John McDonnell said the company has enjoyed being a part of the community.

“From its earliest days, Clyde’s of Reston has been a part of the extraordinary Reston neighborhood as a comfortable and timeless gathering place,” says John McDonnell, CRG President. “Clyde’s has had a tremendous 31-year run in the Town Center and we are so grateful for the steadfast support of the community.”

Clyde’s lovers may not need to grieve for long, however. The company is considering opening another location in the Greater Reston area.

“We are very excited about the growth and development activity in the area and are eager to share some big news soon,” Jeff Owens, CRG’s chief financial and corporate development officer, said.

The company plans to retain its 73-member staff roster in other locations.

Boston Properties did not indicate what will replace the business once it shutters.

Reston Town Center continues to offer a variety of restaurants to suit different tastes and budgets and we look forward to announcing some exciting new additions in the coming months,” the company’s marketing director wrote in a statement to Reston Now.
