Tysons Galleria to add movie theater, Singaporean restaurant this year

Tysons Galleria’s transformation of its former Macy’s store is nearly complete.

The mall has fully leased the redeveloped, 260,000-square-foot wing with the addition of a new restaurant from Malaysian chef Rashidin Abd Rashid expected to open this fall, Brookfield Properties public relations and marketing manager Rachel Willie says.

Willie confirmed that Rashid, also known as Chef Mamu, has signed a deal for roughly 10,000 square feet of space that will house Jiwa Singapura, which translates to “soul of Singapore,” as reported on Thursday (March 31) by the Washington Business Journal.

Located on the wing’s second floor, the restaurant is scheduled to open in October and will offer a variety of Singaporean and Malaysian dishes, such as Hainanese chicken rice, with an emphasis on seafood, according to the WBJ.

Jiwa Singapura will feature 30-foot-high ceilings, two bars, a chef’s table, and a patio, according to a job posting for a general manager.

It is being developed by the team behind the D.C.-based Spanish and Japanese fusion restaurant Cranes, whose chef Pepe Moncayo is also venturing into Tysons with a new concept at Capital One Center.

Keith Isselhardt, Brookfield’s senior vice president of restaurant leasing, says the deal with Chef Mamu reflects the property manager’s efforts to distinguish Tysons Galleria by adding “one-of-a-kind” tenants that can’t be found elsewhere.

“Jiwa Singapura will not only bring a unique offering to Tysons Galleria, but to the entire Washington D.C. metro area,” Isselhardt said. “Tysons Galleria is the sole regional location for a number of restaurants and retailers in the market, making it a destination for both locals and tourists alike.”

In addition, Brookfield told FFXnow that the movie theater CMX CinéBistro is on track to open on the third floor of the redeveloped Macy’s space in the third quarter of 2022, which falls between July 1 and Sept. 30.

Also coming to the former Macy’s space is the sports bar chain Yard House, which currently has a location in Springfield Town Center. The WBJ reported the news in August and says that, like Jiwa Singapura, the craft beer-focused restaurant is slated to open in the fourth quarter of this year.

Tenants currently in Tysons Galleria’s redeveloped wing include Bowlero, the luxury fashion boutique Balenciaga, and four different furniture stores: Arhaus, RH, and Crate & Barrel and its sister brand CB2, which opened in mid-March.

The mall also relaunched its Urbanspace food hall last month, seeking to draw more traffic to new and old eateries.
