A new restaurant and bar, Fiona's Irish Pub, is coming to Kingstowne. The restaurant will replace King Street Blues, at 5810 Kingstowne Centre, which closed its doors in January.
There are two other King Street Blues locations – one in Old Town Alexandria and another in Crystal City.
Fiona's Irish Pub is hoping for a March opening.
The owner of the restaurant is Martin White, who was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. White, who has owned several restaurants in the area, became a U.S. citizen on St. Patrick's Day in 1996. He will be the grand marshal of the St. Patrick's Day parade Saturday in Old Town Alexandria.
