The new development in Tyson’s by the Greensboro Metro is called “The Boro.”
If you haven’t explored the area yet, it’s designed to be a multi-purpose community that brings residential (both condo and apartments), retail, entertainment and office together in one space. The neighborhood is built with a 14-screen ICON movie theater (reclining seats!), and the largest Whole Foods in the D.C. area.
While still under construction at the time of this writing, I wanted to give you my favorite things in The Boro right now:
- The bread pudding doughnuts at Curiosity Doughnuts in Whole Foods. My son also loved the beignets.
- Fish Taco! Everything on the menu is great — I’ve been to their Maryland location as well, but the chips & guac, followed by the Ancho Shrimp salad is so, so good.
- The Whole Foods food hall — a great meeting spot for a please-everyone food hall, easy parking in the garage or short walk from the metro. Lots of tables to sit and chat.
- Honorable Mention: Paris Baguette for all your carb and sweet tooth needs. I myself am more of a salty treat girl (my popcorn addiction is well known), but who can pass up a delicious croissant?
I look forward to checking out the new spots as they open.
