Foodies rejoice part 2: More restaurant options in LoudounFor part 1 click here
Loudoun has seen a grand expansion of new restaurants in 2015.
Now Loudoun Station, as it begins to prepare for the Metro coming to the county, has announced some major additions to their mixed-use Metro station hub, which is being built by Comstock, the folks responsible for Reston Town Center.
Loudoun Station is located adjacent to the Route 772 metro station, which Loudoun's Board of Supervisors has suggested to WMATA be called Ashburn station.
Two new restaurants, a coffee bar and a frozen yogurt establishment, will open in the next few months in anticipation of the trains rolling into the forthcoming Route 772 station in 2018.
The development already has a residential component with its BLVD luxury apartments. Its latest additions to the Loudoun dining experience will be:
-Blackfinn AmeriPub, an American-style gastropub slated to begin serving American fare and craft beers sometime before the end of the year. The restaurant, with locations across the country, will take up 6,500 square feet next to the Starplex Cinemas.
-Basil Leaf Grille, a Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant set to open fall of 2015, will prepare Tandoori Bread and use spices prepared daily.
-Chai Coffee Club is, as it sounds, a coffee bar set to open sometime this summer.
-Yogi Castle, a frozen yogurt spot will serve "smoothies, yogurt shakes, yogurt pies and of course frozen yogurt" beginning sometime this summer.
Outside the confines of Loudoun Station, but still in Ashburn, TaQue (pronounced Tah-Q) has married the concept of Mexican tacos and American barbecue to create dishes like Pulled Pork or Chopped Beef Brisket tacos along with other barbecue infused Mexican fare.
-The Randy Radish, a vegan startup, which originally began as a food truck business is joining with the Garden of Eatin'. The new partnership will have Randy Radish operating out of the Nova Medical Group campus in Ashburn.
Updates from the Village:
-Bon Chon, a South Korean fried chicken restaurant opening in the Village at Leesburg is slated for an April release.
-Rita's, a national Italian ice franchise has signed a lease to occupy the space left vacant in the Village at Leesburg by the departure of Pinkberry.
-Smokehouse Live, a barbecue and live-event space recently brought meat smokers into its large space in the Village at Leesburg, getting ready for a late spring or early summer opening date.
-West End Wine Bar and Pub, a Purcellville eatery modeled after an English pub, which the Times-Mirror has written about, is also set to open in May.
-A Chick-Fil-A is also slated to go into the Purcellville Gateway shopping center.
