Einstein Bros. Bagels is officially opening its first store in the area tomorrow. To celebrate, it’s giving away free bagels for a year to some lucky visitors.

The restaurant will be located in the Crystal Gateway Marriott (1700 Jefferson Davis Hwy) and will open to the public at 6:00 a.m.

“We are excited to present Einstein Bros. Bagels to the Crystal City neighborhood,” said Crystal Gateway Marriott General Manager Sharon Lockwood in a press release. “With over 2,000 guests walking through our lobby each day, we are proud to provide them with a quick and convenient meal.”

The first 100 people in line when the restaurant opens tomorrow will receive coupons for one free breakfast sandwich each week for one year. To be eligible, customers must be at least 18 years old and have a valid photo ID. The coupons are valid only at the new Crystal Gateway location.

    It’s been open for at least a week.

    first in this area? there’s been one in bailey’s crossroads forever.

      I think it’s more like the first new one since they closed most of them a few years ago. But they’ve had small ones popping up for months now. They just opened one at Georgetown as well.

    • Lou

      First one I recall was out in Merrifield. That was late 90’s.

      Think there was also one in Landmark, by Bally’s.

  • Pablo

    There’s definitely one in the GMU building on Fairfax.

  • Just the Facts

    According to the EBB website there are 12 stores within 10 miles of Arlington. Hardly the “first store in the area”…

    • The company referred to it as the “first Einstein’s in the area.” By area, we presume they meant South Arlington.

  • Rachel

    There are two in Reagan airport, too. Best thing about Terminal A.

    Is this a paid article? It seems like it should be, don’t really see the “news” in this.

    • No, it is not a paid article. We routinely report on restaurant openings.

      • AllenB

        And please keep up that reporting. I bet most love it as much as I do.

          I don’t understand why some people complain about these news items. Most Arlington residents like to know when new restaurants are opening in the area.

            +3 – I appreciate ARLnow reporting the opening of new restaurants and other businesses.

      • Maria

        She must be new here. And I agree with AllenB!

      • Alisa

        Restaurant news is what keeps me reading! People who don’t drive everywhere don’t really care about all the traffic accident stories…

  • Mongo

    YUM! It’s actually been “open” for a few weeks, but I guess this is their official “grand opening.” A nice change of pace from the daily Starbucks coffee routine, and the bagels are about 1000x better than the cardboard “bagels” they serve at Starbucks.
