First East Coast location of True Food Kitchen is coming to Fairfax
Fox Restaurant Concepts will open the first East Coast location of True Food Kitchen on Sept. 23 in Merrifield’s retail and dining district, Mosaic, in Fairfax.
True Food Kitchen, which got its start in 2008 in Phoenix, is an eatery developed in partnership with boutique restaurant group, Fox Restaurant Concepts, and author, Dr. Andrew Weil.
Led by Executive Chef Michael Obermeier, the restaurant offers a seasonal menu inspired by the principals of Dr. Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet. According to a press release, it relies on natural, locally sourced foods for many menu selections and offers vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free options.
True Food Kitchen has nine additional locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, and Texas.
“We know Washington area residents place a premium on health and an active lifestyle, and we strongly believe True Food Kitchen will be a great fit to the burgeoning restaurant scene,” Sam Fox, founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts and a seven-time James Beard Award nominee for Restaurateur of the Year, said in a statement.
At Mosaic, an open kitchen will be the focal point of the 5,980-square- foot, 142-seat main dining room. Additional seating will be available on a 46-seat covered patio.
The restaurant will hold a job fair at its Mosaic location at 2910 District Ave. #170 on Aug. 19th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Aug. 25 during those same hours to fill many of its kitchen and wait-staff positions.
