Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken is opening a second restaurant in Idylwood Plaza at 7501 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church. The menu will be very similar to its D.C. location on G Street, but will feature more sides, sandwiches and breakfast options. Doughnuts and fried chicken will of course be available, as will Astro’s popular sandwiches, chicken fingers and freshly brewed coffee from La Colombe (drip and cold brew only). Expanded catering and private event options will also be available from the Falls Church location.
Co-owners Elliot Spaisman and Jeff Halpern have tapped local architects, HapstakDemetriou, to design the 1200 square foot space, which will incorporate limited seating. Opening is expected in summer 2015. More details on the Falls Church location, menu and opening specials, will be made available closer to opening. The original Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken opened in April 2013, and the company launched a mobile food truck in January 2014. For more information, visit www.astrodoughnuts.com.
