The soft opening of Mason’s Famous Lobsters in Reston Town Center has been delayed.
The Annapolis-based restaurant, which is opening its first Virginia location in RTC at 11939 Democracy Drive, will open within the next 10 days, said Malcolm and Kim Gilbreath, the Reston couple runs the Reston location.
A soft opening was anticipated by Malcolm Gilbreath this week, but the process was delayed pending the scheduling of final inspections with the county.
“The store is fully furnished and menu boards are mounted, but we are unable to serve customers until we receive all final approvals from Fairfax County,” Gilbreath said.
So far, Gilbreath said there appears to be strong interest in the restaurant ahead of its opening. At RTC’s trick-or-treat event on Saturday, Gilbreath said several hundred people stopped by the restaurant ahead of the opening. An exact opening date has not been determined yet.
