A new dining option is coming together at Tysons Corner Center.
The fast-casual chain Mezeh Mediterranean Grill plans to open a 3,134-square-foot restaurant with outdoor seating at the mall later this year, the company confirmed to FFXnow.
“Tysons Corner has always been on our roadmap, we just never knew when,” Mezeh Marketing Director Patrick Mika said by email. “Fortunately for Mezeh, a space has opened up and we are excited to join the restaurant ranks in Tysons!”
Tysons Corner Center’s map indicates that Mezeh will be located next to Bloomingdale’s, replacing the Le Pain Quotidien that closed in 2020. Fairfax County processed an interior demolition permit for the restaurant on May 19, but it hasn’t been issued yet, according to county records.
While there’s no clear completion date yet, Mika says the business hopes to open its newest location before the winter holidays.
Based in Annapolis, Mezeh has more than 30 locations across Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and New York with its first D.C. site on the way. Its Fairfax County restaurants are in Fair Oaks Mall, Springfield Town Center, the Old Keene Mill Shopping Center, and Reston’s RTC West development.
Similar to Cava Grill, which lost a trademark lawsuit against Mezeh in 2017, the business serves “create your own” bowls, flat bread wraps and pita pockets with an emphasis on freshness that Mika says differentiates it from other Mediterranean eateries.
“We prep every item that goes on our line that day, and you will not find any additives or preservatives in our food to help extend the shelf life of the product,” Mika said. “Working in small batches help us control both the freshness on the line and the waste that comes at the end of the day.”
According to Mika, the company’s founding partners — CEO Saleh Mohamadi, Steve Walker and Tai Chiao — have all lived in Northern Virginia for more than 40 years and are excited about the “great exposure having a shop” in Tysons Corner Center could bring.
According to the mall’s website, other businesses in the works include Chopathi Indian Kitchen, which was announced last year, as well as a Day & Night Cereal Bar.
