Senor Ramon Plans Move Around the Block

The Senor Ramon restaurant empire is on the move again.

Owner Damian Dajcz announced this week that his flagship Senor Ramon Taqueria restaurant in downtown Leesburg is moving, but it won’t be going very far. The restaurant is moving around the corner into the former Leesburg Antiques Emporium building, and will be one of three businesses to fill that space.

Dajcz said the new location will be around twice the size of its Loudoun Street space. The concept and menu won’t change, but the additional space will allow for a full kitchen and a larger bar area. He said he hopes the more open layout will allow him to showcase how the food is being made. The floor to ceiling windows on King Street will also give passersby an opportunity to see the energy of the new space. The restaurant will occupy two floors of the building.

Dajcz said he had kept his eye on that property and when the opportunity came available to lease it, “We didn’t hesitate. We jumped right into it.”

“We are very grateful for the opportunity to be in that corner,” Dajcz said. “We believe it’s a prime location, with great exposure in the heart of the town. We’re really looking forward to this transition.”

Dajcz hopes to open in the new space by November. There will be about five to six months left on the lease at the current location, which he is hoping to turn into a pop-up concept featuring mojo sandwiches. He said he is not sure if he will extend the lease beyond that point to launch another restaurant venture.

In addition to Senor Ramon, Dajcz owns and operates Bites Wine and Grilled Cheese Bar on South King Street. Senor Ramon also has locations in Sterling and Chantilly.
