(Updated 4:45 p.m.) A fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant is set to open in Ballston.
According to permits filed with the county, Cava Mezze Grill is set to move into 4121 Wilson Blvd, on the ground floor of the Stafford Place II building, the former headquarters of the National Science Foundation.
It will replace the Matsutake Steak and Sushi restaurant at the location, which closed in 2014. Cava Mezze Grill is not to be confused with Cava, which already has a location in Arlington: a full-service restaurant at 2940 Clarendon Blvd in Clarendon.
A reader sent a photo of construction showing the space has been more or less stripped out, ready for the build-out.
