Bitez — a restaurant that sells gyros and crepes — appears to be coming to the Village Center at Dulles in McNair.

According to the property owner’s website, the business is slated to open at 2443 Centreville Road in the former location of Tava Fry.

Bitez has an existing location in Annandale that opened on March 31. Its owner, Layth Mansour, graduated from Annandale High School and an athletics apparel store in Arlington, according to Annandale Today.

Mansour also owns a Arabic restaurant and hookah lounge called Eska that was supposed to open in Arlington in February 2022, FFXnow’s sister site ARLnow reported, but the space has instead sat dormant for more than two years.

Bitez offers halal, New York-style Middle Eastern food, like falafel, gyros, and chicken and lamb over rice. The company did not immediately return a request for comment.

The center at 2445 Centreville Road has three vacant spaces, including a spot for a fitness-related business.
