Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant will open its new Reston location in 10 days.

A permit to operate the eating establishment at 12130 Sunset Hills Road, in the RTC West commercial development, was issued by Fairfax County this week. Signage outside the front door of the restaurant advertises its Aug. 28 opening, as previously announced.

The 9,365-square-foot restaurant also features a 522-square-foot mezzanine area. It will feature “a lively tasting room and market, indoor dining for 196 guests, outdoor dining for seating for 146, and a private event space that can accommodate up to 44,” according to a press release issued this week by the restaurant. The Reston location — its third in the DC Metro area — will be led by general manager Ryan Delisi and chef Laurence Cohen.

Also from the release:

The concept is built upon [CEO Tim] McEnery’s passionate core belief that food and wine hold the power to forge lasting connections. His restaurants are home to 250,000+ Wine Club members, who enjoy limited production Wines of the Month, travel and dining experiences among other benefits.

[Chef Laurence] Cohen works closely with corporate-based Executive Chef Matt McMillin to ensure the utmost in quality and presentation of the expansive contemporary American menu. Utilizing peak of season ingredients, the restaurant’s scratch kitchen selections include a carefully crafted array of food and wine pairings, each listed with a bin number to guide guests’ selections of their perfect wine match.

The release names some of the restaurant’s menu favorites including candied bacon and artisan cheeses; gnocchi bolognese with braised short rib; Southern hot chicken; pan-roasted barramundi; shrimp and scallop risotto; and wild mushroom-crusted chicken.

In addition, the restaurant’s wide selection from its winery is celebrated in the release:

The company, which imports grapes from the best vineyards across the globe to produce more than 40 varietals in its Countryside, Illinois winery, has been honored with more than 450 wine awards. Crafted to please a range of palates, Cooper’s Hawk wines include selections that are accessible for those new to the world of wine, as well as complex and full-bodied options for more seasoned drinkers. In addition to the wine menu, guests can choose from a selection of craft cocktails and sangrias made with Cooper’s Hawk wine. These include inventive takes on a classic Collins cocktail (Harvest Peach Collins made with Slaughter House Whiskey), a Caipirinha with Cooper’s Hawk Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as creative martinis such as a Blood Orange Paloma Martini (Casa Noble Tequila and Cooper’s Hawk Prosecco).

Beginning Aug. 28, the restaurant will be open at 11 a.m. each day. Closing times are 9:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; and 9 p.m. Sundays.

Earlier this summer, Cooper’s Hawk began the process of hiring more than 200 employees for the restaurant. Training of those workers is currently underway.

Work also continues on other buildings in the plaza that will soon house six more restaurants, a nail salon and a Starbucks. The other restaurants on site will include Punjabi by Nature, The Black Squirrel, Honeygrow, BGR The Burger Joint, Mezza Mediterranean Grille and Nando’s Peri-Peri.

The restaurant and retail space is the first phase of development for the site, which is bordered by Town Center Parkway to the east, the W&OD Trail to the north, and the plaza that contains Chick-fil-A, Potbelly Sandwich Works, Chipotle and more to the west. Property owner JBG announced last year that it has further plans for the site, including two multifamily residential buildings and three more office buildings.

If you’ve been waiting patiently for Founding Farmers to open at Reston Station, be prepared to wait a little longer still.

Founding Farmers marketing director Meaghan O’Shea told Reston Now on Wednesday that the restaurant, which was first expected to open last year, is now looking at an opening date early next year.

“We are going to be opening in February of 2018,” O’Shea said. “We’re opening a restaurant in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania and it came down that one of them would have to move dates, and that’s just the way the dice fell.”

It was first announced in October 2015 that Founding Farmers would open its Reston location in late 2016. A year later, that date was pushed to the summer of 2017. Signage currently on the building indicates that it is slated to open in “late 2017.”

O’Shea said the new projected opening date is “not expected to move again or change in any way, shape or form.”

The Reston location will be Founding Farmers’ fifth. Others are in DC, Tysons Corner and Potomac, along with the coming restaurant in King of Prussia.

O’Shea said the Reston location of the farm-to-table restaurant will feature design elements celebrating Thomas Jefferson. It will also have a private dining room, which she said the other restaurants do not have.

“We’ve gotten so many requests for it in Tysons,” she said. “It’s clearly something our guests are asking for and want in some degree.”

The restaurant will offer full sit-down menus for three meals a day, O’Shea said, along with a weekend brunch. She also said there will be a quick-service, grab-and-go program called “First Bake” on weekday mornings to cater to commuters rushing to the Metro.

“We’ve been wanting to get open, obviously, for quite some time now,” O’Shea said. “We’re very anxious and really excited … but we want to make sure it’s a successful opening and we put our best possible foot forward in every aspect.”

Seafood lovers in Reston have a new place to visit.

PokeHub had its grand opening at 11990-C Market Street in Reston Town Center on Tuesday. The build-your-own-bowl menu of offers several varieties of poke (pronounced “po-kay”), a traditional Hawaiian salad made with raw fish. Owner Chloe Lee said the menu at PokeHub is a “poke fusion,” as options include not just the traditional ahi tuna, but also salmon, spicy tuna, tilapia, scallops, shrimp, chicken, sweet egg and tofu.

GRAND OPENING TODAY! … FINALLY..! :)Stop by PokeHub in Reston Town Center for some fusion poke bowls, salads,…

Posted by PokeHub on Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Lee and her husband moved to the DC area about three years ago from California, where they operated a poke restaurant in Pasadena. She said they have been searching for the right location to open one in Northern Virginia, and the 1,152-square foot location within the Retail at Midtown property was it. The space owned by the JBG Companies is the former home of Iceberry, which closed in April.

Lee said they are looking for a site to open a second restaurant in the region.

PokeHub will be open each weekday from 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

For more information about PokeHub, visit www.mypokehub.com, call 703-787-0035 or visit its Facebook page.

Several hundred people enjoyed lunch on the house Tuesday afternoon as Cava Mezze Grill celebrated the opening of its new Reston location at 1815 Fountain Drive.

“We’ve always known Reston is a place we’ve wanted to come,” said Meg Schiffman, Cava’s director of marketing, amid the crowd during the free community-lunch event, which lasted from noon to 2 p.m. “It has been the most-requested location in the history of Cava, and we’re just so thrilled to be part of the community now.”

As of about 1:15 p.m., Schiffman said about 250 people had already made their way through the line, which still extended all the way down The Spectrum shopping center’s sidewalk. Schiffman said it was one of the longest lines she had ever seen during such an opening event, which Cava hosts at each of its new locations.

“Sharing a meal is part of our culture — it’s really kind of where we came from,” Schiffman said. “It’s been something we really feel is important to introduce ourselves, but at the same time to open our doors and really have a shared experience with everybody in the community.”

The Greek and Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant is an offshoot of Rockville-based Cava Mezze restaurant, which has five locations in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. The Reston location is the 34th Cava Mezze Grill nationwide, with plans to add several more by the end of 2017.

The restaurant will open for regular business hours, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., beginning Wednesday.

Since leaving the World of Beer brand and becoming Crafthouse, Evan Matz is making a lot of changes.

“We used to have over 500 different beers, but now we do about less than half of that,” Matz said in an interview. “Even still, we have 50 beers on tap with the new addition of ciders, wine, spirits, any sort of drink.”

Matz said the changes in the restaurant (1888 Explorer St.), which had an official opening celebration last weekend, are about providing quality over quantity. The restaurant is now centered around local breweries including D.C. Brau, Ocelot, Port City and Blue Mountain; and distilleries including Copper Fox, Catoctin Creek and Filibuster. The menu has also been designed around sourcing ingredients from nearby farms; for example, all of the bread in the restaurant has been replaced by fresh baked products from Lyon Bakery.

“We want you to drink local, eat local and support local,” Matz said. “There’s an elevated difference in the food.”

The fallout with World of Beer Franchising Inc. that led to Matz rebranding his three area restaurants — in Reston, Fairfax and Ballston — has allowed him, he says, to expand the menu and cater to customer wants. Now that he has done so, to include items such as macaroni-and-cheese burgers and special brunch offers, Matz says there is a lot more variety for customers to enjoy.

“Now we’re able to offer all of these new starters and shareable items, which means a different happy hour special every day of the week,” he said.

Of course, there you can’t run a restaurant in Reston Town Center without facing its newest and biggest obstacle — the stigma that has come with paid parking.

“We give free validations to everyone who goes to Crafthouse, especially at lunchtime,” Matz said. “It’s just hard to get word out there that parking is now free after 5 p.m., a lot of people don’t seem to know that.”

Matz emphasized that customers need to understand that paid parking is not the restaurant’s fault.

“All we’re asking is that customers continue to come out and support local businesses,” he said.

The restaurant is open until midnight Sunday through Wednesday; 1 a.m. Thursday; and 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information, visit its website or call 571-375-0847.

An application has been filed with Fairfax County to bring another new restaurant to the Hunters Woods Village Center.

Under the permit name “Mingtong Huang,” the application for a new restaurant at 2260-B Hunters Woods Plaza was processed earlier this month. Attempts to reach the applicant and plaza management for additional information about the incoming restaurant have been unsuccessful.

The site at the plaza, between Rite-Aid and Buffalo Wing Factory, was most recently the home of Mathnasium. Prior to that, it housed Reston Tailoring for nearly 30 years.

Several new restaurants have already opened in the plaza this year, including Kung Fu Tea, King Pollo and Pista House Indian Cuisine.
