The latest dining option coming to the Hyatt Regency Reston in Reston Town Center is aiming to be more than just a typical hotel restaurant.
Tavern 64 Regional Kitchen (spotted in this week's Plywood Report) will open later this spring, where Market Street Bar & Grill used to be. Regional cuisine is the restaurant's focus — the menu will feature such items as Virginia pork and North Carolina trout with cheddar grits. There will also be local charcuterie, salads, briskets and meatloaf sandwiches. Desserts lean old-school, like root beer floats.
There's a bit of a historical bent to the restaurant, too. The "64" refers to the year that Reston was founded. The restaurant will also feature drinks that use liquors from Bowman Distillery (which used to be located in Reston), as well as other regional distilleries such as Leesburg's Catoctin Creek. Expect local beers on tap, too.
The ownership invested about $1.5 million remaking the restaurant, according to a spokeswoman. There's room for 168 inside, and 48 on the patio. There are communal tables in the bar area, leather seating and ceramic floors that appear to be aged wood.
