B.F. Saul Company announced that a lease has been signed to bring Wegman’s to Rockville Pike and Halpine Rd. As of now, our best guess is a mid/late 2020 arrival.
Here is the release from B.F. Saul Co.
”This is just the first of many retail, dining and entertainment features that we will bring to this new destination,” the company said, noting the store will sit at the corner of Halpine Road and Rockville Pike. “We are looking forward to continuing our work with the City of Rockville, our neighboring communities and Wegmans to make Twinbrook Quarter a new amenity-rich community for decades to come.”
This was first reported by Store Reporter earlier today storereporter.com/breaking-news-wegmans-way-rockville-pike/

Uncle Julio’s in Rio (Gaithersburg) will not be expanding their patio as they’ve done in years past for their Cinco de Mayo celebration.

No word yet on any possibilities for what may move in to the old Joe’s Crab Shack location permanently.
The outside mural at Tacos, Tortas, and Tequila (8407 Ramsey Ave, Silver Spring) looks like it’s nearing completion according to this photo tweeted by Paul Meyer on Monday, April 22nd.
It was announced a few months back that Ivan Iracan would be bringing Tacos, Tortas, and Tequila to Silver Spring to occupy the old 8407 Kitchen Bar spot (https://www.mocoshow.com/blog/tacos-tortas-and-tequila-coming-to-silver-spring).
A few weeks later he announced that he would be bringing an unlimited small plates program, similar to the one at his popular D.C. restaurant Ambar, to the second level of the location– as Buena Vida.
Buena Vida will take over the second story and offer all-you-can-eat tostadas, empanadas, steak, poblano peppers, Oaxaca cheese, and a lot more for just $35.
The restaurants were expected to open in April, but have been pushed back a month to May. I’m excited to try both of these spots!
