This fall, Austin fave Chuy's opened two outposts in Northern Virginia. But that's just the beginning, according to a Washington Post interview with Chuy's chief executive Steve Hislop. He says Chuy's goal is to open two or three restaurants in D.C. in 2015, three in 2016 and three more in 2017.

Arlington, Woodbridge, Bethesda and Tysons Corners are all targeted as possible locations. Hislop told the Post: "I see 12 to 14 more stores. We will look at the whole market."

The Springfield and Fairfax Chuy's locations are on track to gross $4.9 million each for their first year, the paper reported.
