Ben’s Chili Bowl expanding to Virginia – Washington Business Journal
Iconic Washington D.C. half-smoke purveyors Ben’s Chili Bowl is paying to open a location in Rossyln, Arlington County:
Ben’s co-owner Nizam Ben Ali confirms that the restaurant’s ownership has signed a lease for 1725 Wilson Blvd., which is in the shopping center that used to house Ray’s and is still home to Pho 75, Guajillo and Bean Good coffee, among others.
Opening is expected in 2014. There is a location on H Street NE also in the works, but the Rosslyn location is expected to open sooner.
Ben’s Chili Bowl also has stands at Nationals Park and FedEx Field, but not Verzion Center, though that’s only two Green Line stops from original U Street location.
