Another Outdoor Dining Option For Crystal City?

Crystal City dwellers may soon have another place to enjoy a bite and a beer outside. Hamburger Hamlet (1601 Crystal Drive), a long-time resident of the Crystal City Underground, is looking to expand its presence beyond its darkened front windows.

The restaurant, which brought in new management last year,  has asked the county to allow it to knock down the trees and shrubs in front of the restaurant in order to build a small sidewalk patio with four or five tables. It’s also seeking permission to install new outdoor signage.

No word yet on when the project would get underway if approved by the board.

    Hooray! Good burgers. This was a place I frequented while waiting to take the train to Fredericksburg after long days at work. I’ve since moved up here and know there is not enough outdoor dining in Crystal City (as compared to Pentagon Row). I think this would also help bring more folks to that section of Crystal Shops during the post-rush evening hours.

    Think green and design the outdoor space around the tree/s!
