This is good news, the concept of recruiting local restaurant favorites rather than bringing in national chains. I hope it works for them.
"Jeff Black of Black Restaurant Group is set to open a new venue in fall 2012 at the new mixed-use
Mosaic District development in Merrifield, Virginia. Instead of bringing in national restaurant chains, the Mosaic District’s developers recruited local favorites, like Taylor Gourmet, Cava Mezze, Matchbox, and Black’s new restaurant. The concept for the venue has yet to be determined, but Black aims to create the largest raw bar on the East Coast, with 25 or 30 varieties of oysters."
