Leon is coming to the U.S.

Leon – the future of fast food – is coming from the UK to the States!  Aria teamed up with longtime partners, Fran McDonald (a restauranteur known for importing British concepts) and Herman Stewart Construction to open Leon’s first location in Washington DC. At Leon, their mission is “to help make it easier for everyone to eat and live well.”  From breakfast through dinner and coffee, their menu is full of natural ingredients that provide delicious and healthy options for all. Their eclectic menu leans toward the Mediterranean. They go the extra mile to accommodate dietary restrictions providing gluten-free and vegan options.

Leon’s interpretation of food extends to the design of the restaurant. Each Leon is unique to its location. The backdrop of the space is light and natural with art and graphics layered upon it, always with a handmade touch.  It features natural and sustainable materials such as plaster, concrete, marble, and wood. Furniture is made with simple detailing from raw steel and wood, paired with leather and woven fabrics.

We are excited to share more about the project after construction completes later this summer. Eater DC visited the construction site to check it out recently. Restaurant News also featured the brand. We wish our clients the best of luck as they enter into the DC market!
