A fast-casual sushi restaurant appears to be moving into Virginia Square, but details are sparse.
An application filed with Virginia ABC indicates that Snap-A-Roll will be arriving at 3811 Fairfax Drive, in the same building as a Tropical Smoothie Cafe and the now-closed Water & Wall restaurant.
The space occupied by Water & Wall is still vacant, while another first-floor retail space is listed as being for lease.
In a brief interview this morning with ARLnow.com, the person whose phone number is listed with the ABC application declined to go into details about the new restaurant, or give his name.
“We’re still in the process of getting set up, so I have no specific information to give you,” he said.
The eatery shares a name with the Williamsburg, Va.-based Snap-A-Roll. On its Facebook page, it describes itself as “a revolutionary way to enjoy fresh, healthy and affordable sushi, hibachi and Asian cuisine.”
The restaurant became embroiled in controversy last month after it closed, with disagreement over whether it was for good or for a few weeks to carry out renovations.
In announcing its closure, the company’s Facebook page published a since-deleted post criticizing management and saying that employees did not know when it would reopen.
But the man who answered the phone declined to say much on whether this Virginia Square outpost is connected to that existing restaurant.
“There are some connections, but I do not have any specific information on that,” he said.
