Quench celebrated its grand opening on May 22 in Traville Village Center, located at 9712 Traville Gateway Drive in Rockville.

"We're really excited to bring Quench to Rockville,” said owner , who grew up just miles from Quench’s location.

“We have an amazing team that we lured out to the suburbs from their D.C. restaurants," he said. "As a result, we have a bar, kitchen and wait staff full of amazingly talented professionals, with outstanding resumes. Our goal is to bring a taste of LA, San Francisco or NY to Rockville."

Executive Chef Richard "Richie" Gunter has worked in some of the D.C. area’s finest kitchens, including Buck’s Fishing & Camping, Charlie Palmer Steak, and Alexandria’s Restaurant Eve, according to the release.

Sous Chef Evan Griffin has spent the past seven years working at Firefly, Buck’s Fishing and Camping, Black’s Bar and Kitchen, as well as notable restaurants in Seattle, according to the release.

Mixologists Matt Allred, of Bourbon Steak, and Steve Oshana, of Elisir, have devised a drink menu of cocktails like the Honey Badger, made with pepper-infused tequila, ginger beer, lime juice, honey, and a dash of beet juice, as well as seasonal, low calorie and non-alcoholic drinks.

Was not impressed with Quench at all. Bring back Beale Street Grill! -Neighborhood resident

I second what Leah posted. Beale Street had great food and had real service and an over all nice feel to it. Our experience with Quench was that is over priced, and had the worst service I've ever encountered in any restaurant in my life. The topper was the food wasn't even that good.
