After roughly 10 months of construction and other preparations, Pupatella announced on Monday (June 13) that its newest location is now operating seven days a week, from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday and until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Located at the back of the shopping center at 2980 District Avenue, Suite 140, the 3,220-square-foot restaurant eased its way into the neighborhood with more limited hours in the week leading up to the official launch.
Pupatella Chief Operating Officer and partner Michael Berger says the soft opening gave the restaurant’s staff time to settle into the space and pace of operations, ensuring that the new site will be able to meet the business’ food and service standards.

The pizzeria has seats indoors for 90 people, including an area for private events and gatherings, along with outdoor patio seating for 60 people.
“Different than some of our other stand-alone pizzerias, we are extremely excited to be at Mosaic where we are a part of a thriving regional town center which is a shopping and dining destination for so many in the area,” Berger said. “We anticipate welcoming many of our current fans from other DMV neighborhoods on their visits to Mosaic and making new fans along the way.”
The Mosaic District location is Pupatella’s second in Fairfax County, following an opening in Reston in 2020. Started as a food truck in 2007, the Arlington-based business now has six brick-and-mortar stores overall, with expansions to Springfield, Leesburg, and northeast D.C. on the way.
A deal for a potential Chantilly site is in the works, a spokesperson told FFXnow last week.
The Mosaic District also recently welcomed Pressed, a California company that sells plant-based juices, smoothies and snacks. The store opened on May 25 in the former Puree Juice Bar space at 2905 District Avenue, Suite 140, the company confirmed.
Pressed donated 100% of the proceeds from the opening day to the local nonprofit Martha’s Table, it said in an Instagram announcement.
The Merrifield location is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. It offers same-day pickups and delivers within an 8-mile radius, according to the Pressed website.
Pupatella and Pressed join Shake Shack as the latest food offerings at the Mosaic District, which will add the Middle Eastern restaurant Tawle and the fast-casual Indian restaurant RASA in the coming months.
The mixed-use development is also preparing for its first-ever Pride Celebration, which will take place on June 25 in conjunction with the re-launch of the Mosaic Skateland roller rink.
