Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop Coming to Rosslyn

Capriotti's logoA new sandwich shop will be opening in Rosslyn in early 2014.

Capriotti’s, a fast-casual sandwich shop, will be moving into ground floor retail space along Wilson Blvd in Rosslyn, according to Capriotti’s Washington Metro Area Developer George Vincent. Vincent wouldn’t reveal the precise location because the lease has not yet been signed.

Vincent expects to sign the lease in the coming weeks, and is concurrently applying for permits with Arlington County, he said. Once the lease is signed, building the interior of the restaurant will take about five weeks.

“We’ll probably be open right after the first of the year,” he said. “The idea is to open for the Super Bowl or the week before the Super Bowl.”

Vincent said he’s going to push for some outdoor seating during the process with the county. The Rosslyn location will be Capriotti’s second in the region; a shop will be open in a few weeks on M Street NW, Vincent said.

The chain has locations in 13 states, and specializes in large sandwiches and roasting turkey and roast beef in house overnight. Its most popular sandwich, Vincent said, is The Bobbie, with roast turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayonnaise.

“Part of what drew us to Rosslyn is you don’t have a ton of sandwich shops here,” Vincent said. “I think we’re going to be a spot where you can go in and pick something new every time and not be disappointed.”
