The now-vacant shell of Clyde’s of Reston — which closed last month after more than three decades of business in Reston’s urban heart — will soon be filled by a new wine-focused restaurant.

According to a report by the Washington Business Journal, the Dallas-based restaurant Sixty Vines has signed a deal with Boston Properties for roughly 10,000 square feet of space at 11905 Market Street.

Other restaurants that are planned in Reston Town Center include Fogo de Chão and Open Road Distillery.

WBJ reports that the restaurant will have indoor and outdoor seating that overlooks the Fountain Square Pavilion, which is currently undergoing a major makeover.

Here’s more from the report:

Sixty Vines emerged as the best fit for the prominent Reston Town Center space through a larger, nationwide search, according to Jake Stroman, executive vice president and co-head of the D.C. region for Boston Properties. The restaurant will have indoor and outdoor seating looking out toward the Fountain Square Pavilion, which is part of a larger makeover of the town center’s common areas. The restaurant’s concept, which features small plates, great wines and communal seating, was part of the appeal, he said.

“Sixty Vines is kind of integral to that placemaking effort,” Stroman said. “We view that space as the best restaurant space in all of Northern Virginia, so we wanted to come up with a really great concept that was new to market and just brought a lot of energy to the area.”

Sixty Vines is housed under the FB Society, a hospitality group that rebranded in December 2020. It plans to promote its Whiskey Cake and Sixty Vines concepts to new markets, including Reston.

A spokesperson for Clyde’s of Reston told FFXnow that a lease for a new space in Reston will be announced soon, but no information was immediately available for publication. One of the town center’s first tenants, the restaurant closed on May 21 after 31 years of business.

Sixty Vines currently only has locations in Tennessee, Texas and Florida. Its menu — which is centered around wines — includes pizza, pasta, shared plates, cocktails, desserts and wines. Other locations serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The concept is broadly marketed as cuisine with a focus on “wine culture,” according to its website.
