First Street’s Restaurant Row — home to Rasa, Roti and Declaration, among others — got a little more crowded this winter with the additions of Circa Bistro and its sister restaurant, El Bebe. Circa, which has locations in Chinatown, Foggy Bottom and Clarendon, is known for its flatbreads and salads, and is more upscale than its fast-casual neighbors. El Bebe, meanwhile, is a taqueria-and-mezcal joint that also serves burritos, nachos and queso fundido, alongside frozen and classic margaritas.
Metropolitan Hospitality Group, the restaurant company behind Circa, Open Road and El Bebe, will open two of its concepts in Tysons as part of The Boro development.
Él Bebe, the taco and tequila bar full of trippy graffiti art in Navy Yard, is opening a second location in a Tysons Corner development with an intriguing line-up of dining options. Metropolitan Hospitality Group announced this week that it has plans to open two restaurants in the Boro in McLean, Virginia, by early 2021.

“Portabellas have a meaty flavor,” says Michael Huff, culinary director of Metropolitan Hospitality Group, which owns the taqueria. That's why he chose them as the base for this meatless taco.
A deep selection of appetizers, dips, and fusion tacos make it a nice fit for a pregame pit stop.
