Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse Coming to Reston Station

Boston-based Steakhouse to Include Outdoor Dining on Reston’s Metro Plaza

RESTON, Va., Feb. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comstock Holding Companies, Inc., (“Comstock”) (NASDAQ: CHCI) announced today that Boston-based Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse has signed a lease covering more than 11,000 square feet of retail space on the Metro Plaza at Reston Station, one of two large transit-oriented projects included in the anchor portfolio of managed assets being developed by Comstock in the Dulles Corridor.

Davio’s will be located at 1902 Reston Metro Plaza, the third Trophy-Class building being developed by Comstock on the Metro Plaza, which is adjacent to the North entrance to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station, and is the future headquarters of ICF Global. Plans also include a Davio’s “Grab & Go” Italian market, providing a curated selection of Italian foods and ready-made selections.

Davio’s was founded in Boston by Master Chef and Restaurateur, Steve DiFillippo, with a philosophy of simple, handmade northern Italian foods, including aged steaks, handmade pastas, and exquisite deserts, complimented by an expertly chosen wine list and custom table service. Since opening the first Davio’s in 1985, Mr. DiFillippo has since opened three additional locations in Massachusetts, along with restaurants in Manhattan, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Los Angeles. This will be Davio’s first location in Virginia. 

“It has always been a dream of mine to open a restaurant in Northern Virginia, and what could possibly be better than being at Reston Station,” said Steve DiFillippo, Chef/Owner of Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse. “We can't wait to meet our guests and become part of this wonderful community very soon.”

Davio’s plans to open upon completion of the ICF Global office tower in 2022, and will join locally owned and operated Founding Farmers and SweatLeaf, as well as Starbucks, and the forthcoming matchbox and Big Buns Damn Good Burgers to provide a wide range of indoor, outdoor, and convenient dining options for the thousands of residents, office workers, and daily commuters at Reston Station. Comstock is also putting final touches on the new CVS located adjacent to the north entrance to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station at the center of the Reston Station neighborhood. CVS is planning to open on March 1st.

The Wiehle Reston-East Station is designed to accommodate upwards of 25,000 daily commuters once Phase II of Metro’s Silver Line extends the region’s newest Metro rail line from Reston Station to Dulles Airport and into Loudoun County in late 2020.

“Davio’s nationally renowned operation and award-winning menu compliments the existing range of offerings at Reston Station,” said Tim Steffan, EVP/Asset Management, Development and Leasing for Comstock. “We are delighted to have such a high caliber addition joining our food and beverage line-up in the Reston Station neighborhood.”
