RJ Cooper Concept at Mosaic, Epiphany BBQ

MERRIFIELD—Missy Frederick at the Washington Business Journal toured the restaurant-heavy, Target-anchored Mosaic District site in Merrifield yesterday, and reports that RJ Cooper of Rogue 24 will open a new, yet-unnamed restaurant at the development. Set to open in the spring of 2013, Cooper's high-end concept will take up 5,000 square feet on one level, with 2,000 square feet of rooftop space. Frederick also mentions that the new outpost at Mosaic from Houston-based Mexican restaurant Cyclone Anaya's will include a large patio. [WBJ]

PETWORTH—Thrillist shared some meaty details about the menu at Epiphany Open Pit Beef and Subs, a new Petworth BBQ joint. Menu items include ribs, Philly steak, au jus-dipped Prime Rib Dip, and platters or Kaiser rolls filled with pulled pork, turkey, and beef brisket.
