A new French bistro will open on Mount Vernon Avenue in Del Ray in two weeks, the restaurant’s owner tells ALXnow.

Gostov Boulangerie & Brasserie will be fully open at 2213 Mount Vernon Avenue by Wednesday, Jan. 25. Owner Abderrahim Moussaif says he has all of the necessary city permits.

“We’re legally ready to open, just not practically,” Moussaif said. “We just got the occupancy squared away with the City of Alexandria. We’re still getting everything ready, testing the ovens and training staff. We’re going to have a small opening and serve coffee and cappuccino and a little bit of breakfast, and then we can start implementing heartier food in the spring.”

Moussaif, who runs four Madison Day School child care centers in Alexandria, bought the 14,300 square-foot Del Ray property for $3 million in 2019. The two lots are located in the heart of Del Ray at the intersection of E. Oxford Avenue and Mount Vernon Avenue.

“The idea for the bistro came about a year-and-a-half ago,” Moussaif said. “We were using the building as an office and figuring out what to do with it.”

Moussaif said that the bistro will be able to accommodate 47 customers at a time, and that there will be outdoor seating when the weather warms this spring.

The restaurant will be open 7 a.m.-10 p.m. every day.
