Bistro 1521 Open Again in Ballston

Bistro 1521 (900 N. Glebe Road) is back open after closing earlier this month due to lease defaults.

Posts to the restaurant’s social media pages on Friday announced that Bistro 1521 would be open Saturday (July 14). Since then, business has been good, general manager Solita Wakefield said.

The property’s landlord, the Virginia Tech Real Estate Foundation, briefly closed the eatery because it owed “some back rent,” Wakefield said.

But the landlord was “so willing to work with us,” and the restaurant is now “back on track,” Wakefield added.

Wakefield also noted that Bistro 1521 will celebrate its one-year anniversary next Sunday (July 29), and the Philippines’ ambassador to the U.S.,¬†Jose Manuel del Gallego Romualdez, plans to attend.
