Starr Hill Brewery’s expansion to the ground level of Capital One Center in Tysons is now complete.

The company announced on Tuesday (May 7) that its Starr Hill Brewpub is officially open at 7730 Capital One Tower Road, allowing it to offer additional food, drinks and live music beyond what’s available at Starr Hill Biergarten in The Perch on the roof of Capital One Hall.

“We are so excited to finally be able to share this space with you all. Not to mention our new food and cocktail menus!” Starr Hill said in an Instagram reel.

Capital One Center previously indicated that Starr Hill Brewpub would open in late April, prior to its spring Perchfest celebration on May 3 and 4. While it missed the April time frame, the new pub did open for Perchfest, when it hosted two late-night concerts, Starr Hill Tysons Biergarten General Manager Brian Griffin confirmed to FFXnow.

At approximately 7,572 square feet, the brewpub can seat over 225 people and features two different bars with over 20 beers on tap, an outdoor patio and a 2,000-square-foot mezzanine.

The menu offers a variety of burgers and sandwiches, soups and salads, chicken wings and other appetizers, and desserts, including a strawberry shortcake and brownie sundae. The entrees are jambalaya pasta, fish and chips, a Mediterranean orzo bowl, and a surf and turf dish that consists of a flank steak, jumbo lump crabcake and mac and cheese.

The drink menu mostly focuses on beer, but two draft cocktails — an espresso martini and an aperol spritz — are also available.

Starr Hill Brewpub is currently open from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sundays and Mondays.

“We are slowly opening our ground floor retail space to the public,” Griffin said. “More information will be available in the near future as we look to ramp up our hours and offerings.”

Status of Ox & Rye unclear

With its expansion, Starr Hill adds to a growing assortment of dining options at Capital One Center, which welcomed Stellina Pizzeria on April 30 and the Tex-Mex restaurant Ometeo in December. Sisters Thai is also still slated to open sometime in 2024, per the development’s website.

However, one previously announced restaurant may no longer be on the way. Ox & Rye — a new concept from Arlington’s Wooden Nickel Bar Company that was expected to specialize in “local cuts of beef” and “new American” dishes — has been removed from Capital One Center’s website.

The restaurant’s website remains active, stating that it would be coming to 7770 Capital One Tower Road in winter 2023, but an anonymous tipster reported to FFXnow on April 25 that “coming soon” banners on the storefront were recently taken down.

“It seems like the property owners have taken the wrap off the space at Capital One Center earlier this week, replacing it with a generic Captial [sic] One Center version,” the tipster said. “Did the deal fall through? A real shame, if so…It seemed like a wonderful concept!”

When contacted by FFXnow, Mackenzie Ryan, who had been hired as Ox & Rye’s director, said she was “not at liberty” to comment. She said she’d shared the inquiry with the restaurant’s owner, but hadn’t gotten a response yet.

A Capital One Center spokesperson didn’t comment on whether Ox & Rye is still in the works, stating only that the development would share updates when they’re ready.

This wouldn’t be the first time that Capital One Center has seen an incoming eatery fall through. Last summer, chef Pepe Moncayo confirmed that he had paused plans for a Spanish restaurant called Santi due to “escalating” materials and construction costs.
