Annandale’s newest restaurant, Pelicana, opened to big crowds May 21. There were so many customers, in fact, they stopped filling takeout orders.
Pelicana, which specializes in fried chicken, is next to The Block at 4219 John Marr Drive. It’s open 5 p.m. to midnight during its “soft opening” period, says manager Peter Kim. Eventually it will be open daily 11-2 a.m.
