La Bergerie, a fine dining, French restaurant located in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia since 1976 is one of the original restaurants that helped spur the growth of Old Town into a popular foodie neighborhood. Laurent and Margaret Ticer Janowsky purchased La Bergerie from brothers Jean and Bernard Campagne-Ibarqin 2000 as it was approaching its 25th anniversary year in Alexandria.
The Janowskys have been planning to move La Bergerie to 329 N. Washington Street (7 blocks away, also in the Old Town district) since June 2014. They received unanimous approvals for the proposed move, and addition of an inn, from both the Alexandria Planning Commission and Alexandria City Council in October 2014. The project has been delayed since November 2014 when a small group of citizens filed a lawsuit against the City of Alexandria and the City Council for approving the project. In October 2016, the judge ruled in favor of the City. In December 2016, the plaintiffs filed notice of their intention to appeal the judge’s ruling and on February 22, 2017, filed their Petition to Appeal to the Virginia Supreme Court.
La Bergerie closed in the Crilley Warehouse on December 24, 2016 but the Janowskys expect that the new project will ultimately move forward.
In 2012, the Janowsky family opened a second restaurant in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Del Ray Café. Laurent and Margaret look forward to continuing to greet their long-time La Bergerie guests at Del Ray Café, which offers many of the same specialties in a more relaxed atmosphere.
