(Updated at 4:25 p.m.) This year will be the end of Reston’s Little Beast Cafe and Bistro and Red Velvet Cupcakery.

The businesses at 12100 Sunset Hills Road in RTC West will close permanently on Saturday (Dec. 23), Northern Virginia Magazine reported.

“We are going to miss Reston and our regulars dearly,” the company wrote in a social media comment confirming the report. “If you are ever in D.C., come visit our Chevy Chase location.”

The D.C. location at 5600 Wisconsin Avenue is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

Little Beast and Red Velvet Cupcakery opened in September 2021 in RTC West’s retail center, which is also home to Tiki Thai, Bombay Velvet and Cooper’s Hawk. Red Velvet previously had a location in Reston Town Center that closed in 2018 after paid parking was implemented there.

Northern Virginia Magazine reported that the Gordon Food Group, which operates Little Beast and Red Velvet Cupcakery, already has another concept lined up for the space that will offer pizza, sandwiches and craft beer.
