Two New Restaurants Now Open in Pentagon Row


It’s been a big week at Pentagon Row, where two new restaurants officially opened to the public.

Nando’s Peri-Peri has opened in the space that used to be PR Grill, and Lime Fresh Mexican Grill has replaced Baja Fresh.

This is the second Lime location in Arlington, joining the one in Clarendon that opened earlier this year. Just as with the Clarendon location, this one experienced some delays in getting off the ground, but is now in business. A long line snaked out the door of the restaurant during lunchtime today.

Nando’s has 850 locations around the world, and expansion in the D.C. area was its first foray into the American market. The Pentagon Row location is the first in Virginia. It opened according to schedule, after two days of mock service.
