Matchbox on 14th Street NW is less than a month old, and Ted’s Bulletin is set to open a block away this spring. As if that (and another Matchbox location coming to Merrifield, Va., in March) wasn’t enough, co-owner Drew Kim tells Y&H the restaurant group is finalizing a lease for a third Ted’s Bulletin in Reston Town Center. It would likely open in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Kim says the 170-seat space with a bakery will be similar to its counterparts on Capitol Hill and 14th Street. “We’ve always wanted to be in northern Virginia. Reston Town Center has always been on our radar,” Kim says. “The timing is right.”
Kim adds that he’s also scouting additional Matchbox locations in northern Virginia. “And maybe a new concept may pop up,” he says.
