Can't wait to see the menu released. I really hope Mendizabal doesn't focus heavily on the coffeeRead More shop aspect at all - we already have a bunch of great, independent coffee houses in the neighborhood (Kefa, Zeds, Kaldis, Fenton Cafe, Lesaac, etc., not to mention 3 Starbucks, a Caribou, and Dunkin Doughnuts). The restaurant and butcher shop are what will bring people to this place; it won't compete w/DTSS's great coffeehouse offerings.

Really hope they nail this! The space remained vacant for a number of years after the building'sRead More renovation so hopefully it's worth the wait.

How appropriate that a business named the "Urban Butcher" is going into this building thatRead More itself was architecturally butchered by its owner in 2009. The virtually intact 1924 structure with one-of-a-kind mansard slate roof, original windows, and two side loading docks from when it was the Silver Spring Building Supply Lumber Company were completely destroyed in the cause of contemporary, "cutting-edge" architecture that will be outdated in ten years.

So excited! If the prices are reasonable, I look forward to visiting Urban Butcher regularly.

Two key things about this bakery's success: just because it's located in Bethesda doesn't mean theyRead More have to charge an arm and leg for a loaf. Nothing is cheaper to bake than bread. Next, be willing to turn over inventory. No one wants stale bread or old pastries. This is a mistake La Madeleine has made.

Bobby Flay's place is outside Old Navy next to where Cheesecake Factory is going. Pretty sure thereRead More isn't an entrance going by the existing movie theater.

Hi - I've been told it's near the movie theater at the south end of the mall.
