VIENNA, VA – First Washington Realty is thrilled to welcome Alfredo Solis, critically acclaimed D.C. restaurateur, to Cedar Park Shopping Center. He plans to open his newest and most exciting restaurant concept in Vienna this fall called El Sol. The restaurant’s food and beverage program will be a combination of the original El Sol and Mezcalero Cocina Mexicana, two of his most popular spots in D.C., and will feature traditional Mexican street food, fast-casual lunch service, full-service dinner service, and a cozy Mezcal bar.
Alfredo and his sister Jessica, who operate Mezcalero, El Sol and Little Havana, are eager to expand to Vienna. “We want to put our heart there,” says Alfredo. The siblings are passionate about local and fresh ingredients, and plan to bring these concepts to Cedar Park. “Fresh masa and tortillas made every day,” promises Alfredo. The large kitchen that he envisions for the space in Cedar Park will enable the chefs to experiment with ingredients and produce inventive takes on traditional Mexican favorites.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Alfredo Solis and his team at El Sol to Cedar Park,” says Wright Sigmund, Senior Vice President and National Director of Leasing with First Washington Realty, Inc. “It is precisely these types of exciting local restaurant groups that serve as the lifeblood of communities and will aid in driving the transformation of Cedar Park into a wonderful community amenity.”
