Area restaurateur Nick Freshman was the first to bet on Amazon’s HQ2 when he signed a lease for a new restaurant in Crystal City in 2019, the first retail lease announced by the developer and new Amazon Landlord JBG Smith following the tech giant’s announcement to locate its headquarters expansion in National Landing, Virginia.
According to wtop.com
, "The target to open the restaurant’s doors was some time in 2020. Freshman even opened a pop-up version of The Freshman in the summer of 2019 in the Crystal City Underground to promote the upcoming restaurant. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit. More than two years after initially signing that lease, Freshman, an Arlington County native and Crystal City resident, is finally ready to open The Freshman at 2011 Crystal Drive, a short walk from Amazon’s new National Landing offices."
As per wtop.com, "The 3,400-square-foot restaurant has seating for 120, plus another 50 on the outdoor patio. The Freshman is making it an all-day destination, for office workers to grab a coffee and something to go in the morning, come for lunch during the day and then transition to a nightspot with a full-service bar heavy on cocktails. It will also serve on the weekends, something largely lacking in Crystal City."
