New chicken place coming to Annandale

The interior is nearly finished.
The Pelicana restaurant under construction at 4219 John Marr Drive in Annandale, next to The Block, is expected to open in mid-May, says Dan Lim of Pelicana’s U.S. offices in New York City.

Pelicana is a Korean-based chain that specializes in fried chicken with a sweet red sauce. The company’s slogan is “King of Chicken.” There are seven locations in New York City and one in New Jersey.  

Pelicana is located in a storefront that used to house Amore cosmetics.
In addition to chicken, the menu at the Annandale restaurant will start out simple with just a few items – such as chicken burgers, fries, onion rings, and sweet potato sticks – until it gets more established. There will be a bar, and Lim says, the place already has an ABC license. Patrons will be able to eat inside to get takeout. There is seating for 37 people.

Adam's comments seems racist to me.

How can one area with so many Korean restaurants possibly support yet another one? There is a Korean population, yes. But is there zero room in downtown Annandale for non Korean restaurant? Will Silverado be our only decent quality non Korean option forever and ever? How about something like Cava?

Korean food is delicious; having such a vibrant and active Korean community in Annandale is wonderful.

What's "Chic-Filet"? Is it anything like "Chick-fil-A"?

It's the same issue. Lack of variety-- American, Korean, Mexican, whatever. There's a fair share of Latinos in Annandale yet not very many Latino restaurants in downtown Annandale... so is Annandale discriminating against Latino business owners? Is it discriminating against all non Korean business owners who may want to open a restaurant here? It's a fair question.
