Brown Bag, a restaurant that sells salads, sandwiches and bowls, has officially closed its doors at Plaza America in Reston.

The business closed earlier this month. The company did not return a request for comment to clarify the exact date of closure by press time.

Brown Bag originally opened its Reston store in 2016. The restaurant still has physical locations in D.C. and Bethesda, Maryland, and it delivers catering to offices in Northern Virginia, including in Fairfax, Tysons and Reston, according to its website.

Taïm Mediterranean Kitchen, a fast-casual Meditteranean restaurant, will take over the vacated 2,000-square-foot location at 11692 Plaza America Drive.

A company spokesperson told FFXnow that the restaurant will now open in late fall — a slightly more precise estimate than previously reported.

Taim kicked off in 2005 in New York City and has since expanded to 13 locations, including planned restaurants in Vienna. A location in Pimmitt Hills opened last week.

At Taim, customers build a meal with a pita or bowl base, a choice of items like falafel, meatballs, shawarma, and kabobs.
