Famous Toastery Coming to RTC West Early Next Year

A new sit-down restaurant is joining the food scene at JBG Smith’s RTC West development (12120 Sunset Hills Road).

Famous Toastery, a breakfast and brunch restaurant, will open next to BGR The Burger Joint in February or March next year.

Gary Ready, the Reston location’s owner who was born and raised in Fairfax County, said the restaurant is currently in the process of receiving permits from Fairfax County. Ready, who has been behind several businesses over the last 25 years in Fairfax and Loudoun counties, said he was intrigued by the restaurant’s high-quality ingredients and speed of service.

“The average ticket time is 10 minutes. A lot of other restaurants in Reston Town Center give you quick service. This is one of the few sit-down restaurants in Reston where you can get the sit-down experience and still be in and out in 30 minutes,” he told Reston Now.

Ready said the restaurant will be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and can seat between 100 to 105 people.

County records indicate the building plan is under review.

    Is this replacing one of the previously announced restaurants for RTC West?

      Not that I know of. The Punjabi by Nature owner changed the name of his incoming restaurant to Bombay Velvet and says it’ll be more upscale though, so there’s that. The signs also up

        I was guessing it might be replacing The Black Squirrel, which was announced last summer but has been really quiet since

  • Why do you bother?

    I went to their website. There are no prices listed on the menu….

    Looks tasty, though. And not in RTC, so bonus!

    There is an existing Famous Toastery in Ashburn if you want to give it a try before this one opens!

    How “famous” can it be? The Kardashians are famous, Donald Trump is famous, even Colonel Sanders’ secret recipe is famous. But until now, I have never heard of it! LOL!
    Can toast be famous? Is this like that “in”-famous tortilla which had Jesus’ face on it? Or the flapjacks with Mary’s visage staring back at us?
