Fans of Bryan Voltaggio’s Aggio were disappointed when the chef closed the quasi-pop-up inside of Range last year, leaving behind the Italian concept’s second location in Baltimore.
Now Voltaggio and business partner Hilda Staples have decided to bring the restaurant back for a Washington-area audience. On Aug. 10, it will open at the One Loudoun development and take the place of Family Meal. Family Meal’s other locations in Frederick, Baltimore, Richmond and Hagerstown remain.
“We’ve been there for about a year now,” Voltaggio said. “There’s a great mix of other restaurants in the complex,” but the chef said he thought Italian fare was missing in both the development and larger neighborhood. With a great kitchen, the space was “destined to be more.”
Family Meal’s last day of service will be Aug. 7. The transformation will involve very small renovations, some additional signage and, of course, the addition of pasta-making equipment.
Currently chef de cuisine at Ashburn’s Family Meal, Justin Zawoysky will oversee the new Aggio kitchen. Zawoysky has been with Voltaggio since the opening of the flagship Volt in Frederick in 2008.
Plans for replacing Family Meal with Aggio have been in the works for some time, but when Family Meal hosted an Aggio pop-up in May, Voltaggio was heartened by diners’ reaction. “It really worked,” he said. “It was well received. It was well attended.”
Aggio will be open for dinner daily and weekend brunch. Reservations are available at ashburn.voltfamilymeal.com (the site will remain as Family Meal Ashburn during the transition).
Aggio, coming Aug. 10 to 20462 Exchange St., Ashburn. 703-726-9800.
