No official opening date has been set yet, but construction and building permits are up outside the new Nando’s Peri-Peri restaurant in Ballston.
“We are getting close at Ballston,” said Jim Popkin, a representative for the company.
The restaurant is located at 4401 Wilson Blvd, the former home to Italian eatery Vapiano’s.
A Virginia ABC notice outside of the restaurant indicates that Nando’s is seeking to serve wine, beer and cocktails in a space with more than 150 seats.
The Portuguese-style chicken chain has an existing Arlington location in Pentagon City.
