Bethesda is getting a new pizza place. Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza is moving in to the the old Community/One Burger @ Community location at 7776 Norfolk Ave.
The chain started in Florida in 2002 and has since expanded with more than 50 restaurants throughout the northeast. It is owned by Anthony Bruno and backed by NFL Hall of Fame quarterback, Dan Marino.
“I have a simple approach to my menu – use the highest quality ingredients and charge a fair price. It’s not just the big things, or the little things – it’s Everything! Dough made fresh, in-house every day. Imported Italian plum tomatoes. Chicken wings that are never frozen. From the best Grande mozzarella to using only albacore tuna, you get the picture.
That’s the way we do things around here.” says owner, Anthony Bruno.
In addition to pizza Anthony’s will feature oven roasted chicken wings, homemade meatballs made from scratch, and other dishes classified as “Italian Soul Food.”
The Anthony’s opening was reported earlier today by Bethesda Magazine.

A couple weeks ago we were told that Hawkers Asian Street Fare was looking to move into the old Redwood location in Bethesda Row (7121 Bethesda Lane).
We were unable to get confirmation at that time, but the location is now draped with Asian-inspired imagery, which tells us the move is likely happening soon.
Hawkers Asian Street Fare opened its first location in Orlando in 2011. Since then they have expanded to South Florida, Atlanta, Nashville, and more! It looks like Bethesda will be next!
Per their website, “hawkers” are street vendors who depend on locally grown ingredients to create dishes sold from mobile carts and stands.
“We hand-picked the best and most popular street foods from all over Asia and put them into one menu. In fact, most of these recipes have been handed down in the founders’ families for generations and are still served on the streets of Asia today!”
Crave American Kitchen & Sushi Bar, located in Montgomery Mall, will close permanently today.
We were informed of the closing last week, but management told us that the restaurant would be staying open. Earlier this afternoon we were told that today would be the last day for the Bethesda restaurant.

I had the opportunity to stop by Fuse Taco in Bethesda today (4903 Cordell Ave., in the old Bold Bite location).

In addition to tacos they will serve items like, chips and salsa/queso, nachos, crispy rolls, grilled meat sticks, street corn, and more.
Back in October, Thompson Hospitality announced the decision to close Hen Quarter in Downtown Silver Spring (919 Ellsworth Drive) and replace it with Matchbox.
Yesterday, Bethesda Beat reported that Matchbox will be opening on Friday, 4/5.
Matchbox currently has a location in MoCo on Rockville Pike and will be opening their Bethesda location this summer.
There were previously rumors of Matchbox also replacing Ted’s Bulletin In Downtown Crown (Gaithersburg), but they never materialized before Matchbox sold off the Ted’s Bulletin brand last year.
