(Updated at noon) The last day of 2023 will be the last day of operations for Mon Ami Gabi in Reston.

The business is set to close on Dec. 31 after 15 years of business at Reston Town Center.

“We’ll be open for dine-in, carryout, and delivery until then,” the company said in a notice on its website. “We hope to make the most of these last few months with you.”

Led by Chef Jason Myle, the restaurant serves French bistro classics, including lunch dinner and weekend brunch.

The website says the Reston location at 11950 Democracy Drive will close because its lease is “expiring.” A company spokesperson declined to provide additional information on why the restaurant did not renew its lease.

“The French bistro has been a part of the Reston, VA community for 15 years and it has been a pleasure to serve all of our loyal guests,” the spokesperson wrote in a statement.

Mon Ami Gabi still has its original restaurant in Bethesda, Maryland, along with Chicago and Las Vegas locations. The business is part of Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants, whose other D.C. area brands include Wildfire in Tysons and Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab in the District.

Boston Properties, which owns Reston Town Center, confirmed that Mon Ami Gabi’s lease is expiring and said it has “enjoyed our long-term partnership” with Lettuce Entertain You.

“An exciting new partnership and restaurant concept will be announced soon,” a Boston Properties spokesperson said.
