Honeygrow Set to Open Friday in Reston

Reston’s newest restaurant, Honeygrow, is set to open this Friday, May 11 in the Reston Executive Center, 12100 Sunset Hills Road, suite R12.

Honeygrow is a fast-casual restaurant that serves up a menu of fresh stir-fry noodle bowls and salads, with made-from-scratch ingredients like egg noodles and salad dressings.

Founder and CEO Justin Rosenberg says all items on the menu are made-to-order, to ensure peak freshness–and ordering customized meals is easy thanks to Honeygrow’s touch-screen ordering kiosks.

Every location also boasts a signature “honeybar,” where guests can enjoy fresh fruits, local honey and toppings such as yogurt, dark chocolate chips, coconut shavings and house-made whipped cream.

One thing no other location will have yet, that Reston will, is catering.

“Honeygrow catering is perfect for offices and gatherings,” says Rosenberg.

Honeygrow was founded in 2012 in Philadelphia, and has since grown to a long list of locations, including Chicago, New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, and in the district.

“We’re beyond excited to continue our expansion within the Washington D.C. Metro market and into Reston,” says Rosenberg. “It’s a community that obviously values quality foods, and we’re excited to now be a part of that roster.”

To show its commitment to being good neighbors, Rosenberg adds that $5 from every salad or stir-fry ordered this Friday, May 11 on opening day will be donated to Back on My Feet.

“Back on My Feet is a national nonprofit that has helped thousands of men and women experiencing homelessness make the transition back into society with the foundation of a strong running program,” Rosenberg explains. “The program includes housing resources, as well as a job training and placement program, and Honeygrow is proud to employ many graduates of the program.”

In addition, the first 100 guests to visit the new Reston location this Friday, May 11 will receive complimentary meals of one stir-fry or salad and a beverage.

The Reston location will be open Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Are you looking for an all natural, gluten-free treat? J-petal’s Japanese crepes and Thai rolled ice cream could be just want you need.

Inspired by Japanese crepes, J-petal’s founders put a twist on their recipes, then tested them out thousands of times before bringing them to the market. The Brooklyn-based shop has a Reston location that serves its crepes made with fresh fruit, vegetables and meats.

The menu offers more than a dozen crepes from savory to sweet. Plus, each crepe is crafted by a skilled chef so it doesn’t just taste great, it’s visually pleasing too.

And don’t forget about the lightbulb drinks — there’s everything from mango colada and honey green iced tea to mojito virgin and thai ice tea. The weather is finally warming up, these are good bets to cool you down.
