Restaurant space at 1850 Fort Myer Drive in December 2017

An long-vacant, off-the-beaten-path restaurant space in Rosslyn appears to be getting a new tenant.

Yuraku Japanese Restaurant is coming to the ground floor of the high-end Turnberry Tower condo building at 1850 Fort Myer Drive, according to permit filings and the restaurant’s website.

According to filings, the space will remain largely as-is, with the addition of a sushi bar and some kitchen alterations.

Yuraku has an existing location in Germantown, Maryland. Its website says it was founded in 1998. The restaurant’s 12-page menu includes sushi, soups, salads, tempura, noodle dishes, and dozens of specialty rolls.

The restaurant space is located at the corner of Fort Myer Drive and N. Nash Street, a block from the Rosslyn Metro station and two blocks from the main N. Lynn Street drag.

Somewhat hidden behind some trees and bushes, and on the quieter side of two busy roads, the space proved challenging for its previous occupants. A restaurant serving Chinese cuisine, Secret Chopsticks, closed in 2016 after only three months in business. Its successor, Pancho Villa Mexican Cuisine, was open for a year-and-a-half before it closed in December 2017.

There’s no word yet on an opening day. The new location is only listed as “coming soon” on Yuraku’s website.
