(Updated at 5:55 p.m.) This spring will bring a wealth of new dining options to Tysons Galleria.
The mall’s Urbanspace food hall will officially relaunch on March 22 after going into a kind of hibernation mode during the first two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, a news release announced yesterday (Thursday).
The celebration will serve as a formal introduction to the space’s four newest vendors:
- Twelve Twenty Coffee, a cafe from former Tysons Urbanspace assistant general manager Victoria Smith that specializes in pour-over coffee
- London Chippy, the first permanent brick-and-mortar location for a British food truck that has operated in the D.C. area since 2016
- Empanadas De Mendoza, another local food truck-turned-restaurant that opened in December
- Hedzole, which offers Ghanaian cuisine and has appeared at the Mosaic District and Springfield Town Center farmers’ markets
All of those tenants have started operations except for Hedzole.
Urbanspace confirmed that the West African eatery will start as a weekend-only pop-up available through June, but owner Candice Mensah told FFXnow that she hopes it could turn into a permanent tenant.
The newcomers will join Andy’s Pizza and Donburi, which have been in the food hall since it first launched in December 2018. The Cantonese restaurant and bar Hei Hei Tiger is also expected to return later this spring after the pandemic cut short its initial soft opening in February 2020.
As reported by Northern Virginia Magazine, Urbanspace anticipates adding another three vendors by June, including the açaí bowl and smoothie outlet Makaw Bowl, which is rebranding as Makaw Superfoods.
A spokesperson said Urbanspace hasn’t confirmed Makaw Bowl’s opening date, so it’s unknown if that will be around in time for the official relaunch.
The vendor lineup was curated with an eye toward diversity, according to Urbanspace Marketing Director Maija Talikka.
“Of our vendor partners, we have three black-owned businesses, three women-owned, and five minority-owned businesses,” Talikka said by email. “They are the most exciting group of people I’ve worked with in a long time and I can’t wait for our community to get a taste — literally and figuratively!”
Urbanspace Tysons is currently following a limited schedule with no morning hours, but it will expand operations on March 14, opening from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Friday-Saturday 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
The food hall will add Monday hours from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. starting April 11.
A 5 BD/3.5 BA brick home with a stone gas fireplace and garden patio is included in Open Houses.
