Bryan Voltaggio to open a second Family Meal, in Ashburn

Volt/Range/Aggio chef-owner Bryan Voltaggio is planning to open his first restaurant in Virginia -- and second Family Meal -- this fall in Ashburn. Bigger than the Frederick original, Family Meal No. 2  will cover  5,100 square feet in One Loudoun, a mixed-use complex that includes residences.

Meanwhile, the forthcoming Baltimore branch of Voltaggio's restaurant-within-a-restaurant, Aggio, has acquired the services of Dan Izzo, the former executive sous chef of the four-star Del Posto in NYC.  The second Aggio, in Power Plant Live, will open in June.

"I'm putting some miles on the car," says Voltaggio, whose home base is in Frederick. "It's going to be a busy, busy summer."


Weaned on a beige buffet a la “Fargo” in Minnesota, Tom Sietsema is the food critic for The Washington Post. This is his second tour of duty at the Post. Sietsema got his first taste in the ‘80s, when he was hired by his predecessor to answer phones, write some, and test the bulk of the Food section’s recipes. That’s how he learned to clean squid, bake colonial cakes and distinguish between nutmeg and mace.
