A popular D.C.-based Chinese and Korean restaurant is coming to Shirlington later this year.
This will be Chiko’s fourth location and first one in Virginia.
“We are excited to bring CHIKO to this amazing community,” wrote co-owner and chef Scott Drewno in the press release. “Danny and I felt Shirlington was a perfect spot as our first foray into Virginia. We are looking forward to cooking for you all in Fall of 2021.”
The restaurant is known for its dim sum, double-fried chicken wings, and fried rice. The menu will also include dishes found at the other locations including Cumin Lamb Stir Fry, Soy Glazed Brisket, and Orange-ish Chicken
“Guests will delight in the cleverly crafted menu by Chefs Danny Lee and Scott Drewno composed of a new, exclusive fried rice to this location,” notes the press release. “We will also introduce a new dessert and a few surprises for Virginia.”
The restaurant will be about 1500 square feet and be able to accommodate 30 seated guests while offering “fast-paced carry-out.” The location was designed by D.C.-based Natalie Park Design Studio.
“Federal Realty is excited to add a second CHIKO location to our DC-metro portfolio. The Bethesda location has seen incredible success during a very challenging time, and we look forward to the same in The Village at Shirlington,” writes Stuart Biel of Federal Realty, which owns the shopping center. “CHIKO’s incredible reputation and loyal following means yet another quality food option in the Village.”
So far there’s no word on an exact opening date.
Chiko is not the only new business set to open in Shirlington come the fall. Bearded Goat Barber is also planning an autumn debut.
