RE: Dean & DeLuca Opening in Bethesda

I like Dean & DeLuca and I appreciate that there is a good market for them here in Bethesda.

I just hope that we are also able to support local Bethesda businesses that have been providing us with high quality gourmet food and other tasty niche products….yup Cornucopia I am thinking of you!


Taste of Bethesda October 1

Hurrah and enjoy unconfined!

Taste of Bethesda is almost here!

From our friends at Bethesda Up:

Bethesda’s famous food and music festival brings 60 restaurants and five stages
of entertainment to Bethesda’s Woodmont Triangle. Each year, more than 40,000
attendees sample the delicious restaurants, enjoy the live entertainment and visit
the kid’s corner for face painting and arts & crafts.

Modern Market

Well I finally got around to visiting Modern Market on Elm and was happy I did so! As readers know I was a bit sad that Boloco Burritos closed down (it really had some delightful dishes on the menu) but I am glad that Modern Market seems to be a worthy replacement!  The Superfood salad is one that all healthy eaters should consider!



Bethesda Actually and Cornucopia are back!

Good news friends – not only is Bethesda Actually back up and running after our latest technical snafu but we can also rejoice in the fact that Cornucopia is scheduled to reopen after Ebo’s Summer holiday. I had planned to wander over there to get some bread this morning but the rain has driven me in doors for now. But I am looking forward to popping in and telling Ebo he has been missed these past weeks! In particular the lack of really good gelato during the hot and humid days of summer was a big miss!



Modern Market Bethesda Opening Soon

Hi folks, just a quick update on Modern market – the fast casual chain from Denver that boasts high quality ingredients and dietry options – is looking at mid-August for its opening. See this link if you want to sign up for the soft launch:

Here at Bethesda Actually we were disappointed that Boloco didn’t make it in that space (and still feel bad that Baja Fresh closed down) but have hopes for Modern market. It is a good real estate spot – just needs the right concept and hopefully this is it!

Summer Lunch At Satsuma

Regular readers will know that we are big fans of Satsuma on Norfolk Ave and enjoy their noddle soups in the winter. Well, I wanted to jot a quick post and say that Satsuma is a rather nice place to go for lunch on a hot summers day as well!
I enjoyed splitting some sushi and a wonderful seaweed salad combo with a friend a couple of days ago. As ever the service was terrific.


Max Brenner Closed but Bethesda Chocolates Opening Soon

Bethesda Chocolate fans don’t despair – while Max Brenner has closed down but it looks like Bethesda Chocolates is going to be open very soon! The new chocolate shop on Woodmont ave promises to be a “must visit” spot for everyone with a sweet tooth in our neighborhood. Here at Bethesda Actually we can’t wait for it to open!
