The restaurant that started it all, Cava Mezze in Traville Gateway (Rockville), now serves Sunday brunch.
Their brunch will feature dishes like short rib frittata and avocado smash toast to go along with their daily menu and $5 mimosas. Brunch will be a la carte.
Childhood friends Ike Grigoropoulos (Gaithersburg High School), Dimitri Moshovitis (Quince Orchard High School), and Ted Xenochristos (Paint Branch High School) opened the restaurant in 2006.
There are currently five Cava Mezze restaurants in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia (Rockville, Olney, Capitol Hill, Clarendon, and Baltimore).

Eion has been a Robeks customer for years, frequenting the location near his work in Virginia. He loves that he will be able to offer MoCo residents a healthier alternative and chose Research Row because he loved that he could start brand new.

Gyuzo Japanese BBQ is coming to Rockville Town Square, taking over part of the old Mellow Mushroom location on 33 Maryland Ave.
Gyuzo will offer grilled meat with a focus on imported beef and other ingredients. Japanese waygu beef will be a staple and is characterized by the original taste of meat and the sweetness of the marbling fat content, according to their website.
Last month we broke the news of Kyoto Matcha, an instagrammable Japanese green tea and dessert spot, coming to Rockville Town Square. Now we are told that Taro Cents Family will be joining Kyoto Matcha at 33 Maryland Ave Suite 315.

We have been told that the Rock Creek Village Center Pizza Hut (5556 Norbeck Rd. Rockville, MD) has closed its doors permanently.
In late 2018, parent company Yum Brands expressed dissatisfaction with Pizza Hut’s growth. In the last year or so, there have been at least three Pizza Hut closures in MoCo alone.
We’ll see if the trend continues as Pizza Hut continues to make changes to nearly 7,500 locations across the country.
Planet Aid Thrift Center, a popular thrift store in Baltimore, has moved to Rockville.
After closing its Catonsville location permanently last month, they announced a move to 5520 Randolph Rd in Rockville. It will be located in the Montrose Shopping Center near MOM’s Organic Market.
