Mezeh is ready to open its doors at Tysons Corner Center.
A grand opening for the fast-casual Mediterranean chain’s new location at the mall will be held tomorrow (Wednesday). The restaurant is in the former Le Pain Quotidien next to Bloomingdale’s.
“We knew that Tysons Corner would be a great place to have a mezeh, but we didn’t know when it would happen,” Mezeh Managing Partner Patrick Mika said by email. “With this free-standing location outside of Bloomingdale’s, we expect to gain a lot more exposure for the mezeh brand at this mall location compared to our other mall locations.”
Mezeh has over 30 locations across the mid-Atlantic region, including spots in Reston, Fair Oaks and Springfield. It serves build-your-own pita pockets, flatbread wraps and rice, salad or pilaf bowls.
The 3,134-square-foot Tysons restaurant will have the unique twist of serving as a test kitchen, where the company will try out new recipes and entrees, according to Mika.
“[That] will be very exciting for both us and our customers,” he said.
To celebrate, the eatery will give customers at the grand opening a free bowl with the purchase of a drink and a $10 credit that can be used during a future visit. The promotion will be available for purchases made in the store that day from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5:30-8:30 p.m.
The free bowl will still carry a $2 charge if the order includes steak or lamb.
Other recent changes at Tysons Corner Center include a Peachwave frozen yogurt stall that opened in the third-floor food court last week. In addition, two interactive pop-ups centered around candy and Dr. Seuss are on their way to the mall.
