Coming Soon: Local Groceries, Revamped Eateries

Foodie news from around Montgomery County and neighboring Washington, DC, neighborhoods.

Get caught up with the food scene in Montgomery County and adjacent Washington, DC, neighborhoods with 1 Meat, 3 Sides. This week, a new organic grocery takes center plate:

One Meat:

Dawson's Market opened this weekend in Rockville Town Square, Rockville Patch reported.

The store is "a locally focused, independent, natural foods market," according to its website. “Local is what we’re all about,” Becky Lakin, marketing director for the store, told Bethesda Magazine.

"It remains to be seen how much nearby produce will be available in the dead of winter, but the 100-mile radius the store has set for its 'local' designation also includes meats, cheeses, beer, wine, and other goods. There’s also a 'regional' category that widens the scope to 250 miles," Bethesda Magazine reported.

Three Sides:

Bethesda's California Tortilla location at 4862 Cordell Ave. (which opened in 1995) is moving soon—to 4871 Cordell Ave., the space formerly occupied by Cesco Trattoria. The "soft opening" will likely take place on Oct. 2, founder Pam Felix said, Bethesda Patch reported. The new location will have a new look, as well as wifi, beer and a huge patio.

Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza is extending its delivery range to include parts of Bethesda and Chevy Chase. Co-founder Joel Mehr "felt enough Bethesda customers were interested in a Pete’s delivery service to justify extending its reach past the District line and up to Goldsboro Road and Bradley Lane, just south of downtown," Bethesda Now reported.

China Jade Bistro, a new restaurant opening soon in the Cabin John Shopping Center, pushed back its opening date from late September to early October, co-owner Candy Yan told Potomac Patch.

The restaurant will occupy the former location of the now-shuttered Jade Billows restaurant.

"We want to do a modern Asian kitchen—some new, contemporary dishes,” said store manager Co Dang. “The menu will be similar [to that of the former restaurant], but we’ll have around 10 new entrees.”
