Small Bites: Gusto Farm to Street Will Open Next Week in Westfield Montgomery Mall

Gusto Farm to Street readies to open its Westfield Montgomery mall location

Local fast casual Gusto Farm to Street is getting ready to open in its third location. Its Westfield Montgomery mall restaurant, in the dining terrace between Chipotle and Cava, will open next week, a company spokeswoman said.

The restaurant, which serves fast-fired pizzas and salads, will open from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 4. For the first night, Gusto will offer each customer a free meal, though the restaurant will accept cash donations to Rockville nonprofit Nourish Now.

Starting Sept. 5, Gusto will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day other than Sundays, when it will close at 9 p.m.

The restaurant has locations on Woodmont Avenue in downtown Bethesda and on Fenton Street in downtown Silver Spring. The chain is planning to add locations in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., in the next two years.
