There are still some units available for sale at Symphony Park. As regular readers know, there is no doubt that Symphony Park is a project that I have felt really good about from the moment they broke ground a couple of years ago.
The location is fantastic – the project blends into the grounds of Strathmore Music hall in north Bethesda and is just south of the new development scheduled for the White Flint mall area.
The concept is wonderful – this green space and arts integrated community gives owners the opportunity to interact with the nationally renowned Music hall while living in a serene green environment.
The properties themselves are fantastic – they have won numerous awards and have features including optional elevators, high end kitchens and wonderful floor plans.
I’d love to take you to Symphony Park to tour their model homes and meet their sales VP. The final phase is on tap for delivery. So, if you want to chat about Symphony Park or any other real estate matter, drop me a line at email@example.com or give me a call at (240)486-3921. Cheers!

We were kindly invited to attend an upcoming media event for Smashburger. Looking forward to attending and will share our thoughts/impressions on these pages next week after the event. Here is a snip of the invite:
“To kick off Smashburger’s new national partnership with Honest Tea (headquartered in Bethesda), we’re having their CEO Seth Goldman join us for a special tasting and presentation about the organic bottled tea company. Seth and a Smashburger rep will be on-site to talk about the synergies between the two brands as both are committed to serving products that people can feel good about, comprised of quality ingredients for better food and drink experiences. Smashburger is the first national restaurant chain to roll out Honest Tea’s freshly brewed iced tea options at all restaurants nationwide.”
Just wanted to note that Zeke’s holiday blend was wonderful! Well done Zeke’s yet again!
Readers of this blog know that we have been fans of Cafe Deluxe Bethesda for a long time. And it is in that spirit that the question “What happened to thee on Saturday Eve?” is posed! We went to Cafe Deluxe with our family on Saturday and were really disappointed in several aspects of our experience. The low lights are as follows:
1. Flat bread pizzas – two ordered: the steak one had almost no steak on it and the cheese one was cold and had very little topping
2. Fish dish – one ordered: fish was not cooked sufficiently. We pointed this out to the waiter who agreed and took it away. He returns with the same portion on a side plate and overcooked. Now, I have never worked at a restaurant and rarely send food back but was very surprised that the protocol at Cafe Deluxe did not see them make a new piece of fish when the first piece was observed as undercooked.
3. Wine portions were very small for the price (and not what they have been on our many other visits). This is becoming an issue at one or two other Bethesda restaurants and my advice is the following. If margins are tight, charge an extra $1 and then give the customer a full glass of wine.
Really hope Cafe Deluxe can turn it around as it has been a go to place for a long time……
PS the Yelp reviews by date were interesting:
Now take a look at their HQ (whisper……outside Bethesda
Just had a wonderful lunch at 100 Montaditos Bethesda! Joey, the barman, provided super service and the food was fab!
For the record the 3 montaditos sampled today were: goat cheese and pesto, spanish tortilla, tomato/basil/mozzarella.
Have you made it over there? Feel free to leave a comment with your impressions below!
I was not familiar with this restaurant concept but it is interesting to see Chipotle launching new brands:
ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen, the Southeast Asian restaurant developed by Chipotle Mexican Grill, will open on Wednesday in Bethesda.
ShopHouse diners can choose a base of rice or noodles, and then add a protein, vegetables and sauce. The first ShopHouse opened in Washington, DC in 2011. The Bethesda restaurant will be the chain’s third on the east coast. The entire menu is gluten and dairy free.
ShopHouse Southeast Kitchen, 4820 Bethesda Ave., Bethesda, 240-316-3500. Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week
