It appears the last vacant space in the hot Belmont Chase shopping center has been snapped up. Word is that Virginia Beach-based Baker’s Crust Artisan Kitchen will take the final spot next to the also coming soon Ironstone Hibachi Sushi Lounge.
According to the Baker’s Crust website, the name comes from the fact that hearth-baked European breads are the “heart” of the business, and all the breads, pastas and desserts are made from scratch.
The restaurant’s extensive menu includes farm-to-fork salads, artisan sandwiches, Neapolitan pizzas, burgers, street tacos and other assorted entrées.
The first Baker’s Crust opened in 1993 and today, there are six locations — four in the Virginia Beach area and two in Richmond. This appears to be the first Baker’s Crust in Northern Virginia. No word yet on when it will open.
