Want to grab some spicy chicken before seeing a Nats game? Come summer, it's an option.
Nando's Peri-Peri will open a new location at The Yards, the new development in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood near Nationals Stadium. The restaurant will open in June. This Nando's location will be about 3,000 square feet in size, and have a patio for use in the spring and summer months.
This will be the 12th Nando's location in the U.S. when it opens. The chain got its start in DC and has since spread its footprint to Annapolis and greater Baltimore. The design of the Nando's will be similar to other restaurants in the chain, though the company is working with local firm HapstakDemetriou+ on its design.
The Yards development, from Forest City, will also include such restaurants as Blue Jacket Brewery and Buzz Bakery, among others.
