Alexandria residents will soon have a new dining option along the Route 1 corridor. The former Dairy Queen site on Richmond Highway will become City View Brewhouse — a locally owned and operated restaurant.
Construction on the restaurant, located at 6925 Richmond Highway (at the corner of East Lee Avenue), will begin this fall, according to Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation (SFDC). City View Brewhouse will be a 6,000 sq. ft., full service restaurant and brewery.
