Gostov Boulangerie & Brasserie opening May 30 in Del Ray

Gostov Boulangerie & Brasserie will soon open at 2213 Mount Vernon Avenue in Del Ray (Via Facebook)

After several months of delay, French bistro Gostov Boulangerie & Brasserie (2213 Mount Vernon Avenue) is set to open next Tuesday in Del Ray.

The notification that the bistro is opening was made by the Del Ray Business Association (Visit Del Ray) on Facebook and Instagram.

“We are so excited — @gustaveboulangerie (finally!) opens on Tuesday, May 30 at 10am,” Visit Del Ray posted.

Owner Abderrahim Moussaif bought the 14,300 square-foot Del Ray property at the corner of Mount Vernon and E. Del Ray Avenues for $3 million in 2019. The bistro is the former home of Bean Creative, which also closed in 2019. Moussaif also runs four Madison Day School child care centers in Alexandria.

The restaurant will serve macarons and feature an espresso bar, although the rest of the menu is under wraps. The company’s website promises an “authentic and traditional French experience.”

Moussaif could not be reached for comment. He previously wanted to open the restaurant earlier this year, and said that the  bistro will be able to serve 47 customers at a time, and that there will be outdoor seating.

The restaurant will be open 7 a.m.-10 p.m. every day, except Sunday when it will open at 8 a.m.
