A new Mediterranean restaurant is coming later this year to Plaza America in Reston.

Fast-casual restaurant Taïm Mediterranean Kitchen will open a nearly 2,000-square-foot location at 11692 Plaza America Drive this fall, according to company representative Becky Olson. Tentatively, an October opening date is anticipated.

Olson said the restaurant will offer fast-casual options for shoppers and nearby offices.

“Guests love having fresh and vibrant options, like our Mediterranean cuisine, that they feel good about eating multiple times per week,” she said. “Taïm customizable salads, bowls and pitas are crave-able for lunch and dinner, and we offer family meal options to enjoy in the restaurant or take home.”

The business got its start in 2005 in New York City. Since then, it has 13 locations the New York and D.C. areas — including planned locations in Vienna and Pimmit Hills.

Customers can build a meal with options like a pita or bowl base and a choice of falafel, meatballs, cauliflower shawarma, eggplant, shawarma and kabobs.
