Serrano ham from 100 Montaditos
In this week’s Top 5 Bites, a new bar from bartender Derek Brown and a Spanish sandwich chain expands to Bethesda.
Motorhead in Shaw
Eat the Rich is aiming to open this weekend at 1839 7th Street NW (map). The new oyster bar is a partnership between Mockingbird Hill’s Derek Brown and Rappahannock Oysters’ Travis Croxton. Along with oysters, wine, beer and cocktails, Chef Julien Shapiro (formerly of Range, Society Fair, and Palena) will be serving a variety of dishes featuring sustainable seafood from the Chesapeake.
Small Spanish Sandwiches in Bethesda
Spanish sandwich chain 100 Montaditos opened its first D.C. area location on Saturday at 4922 Elm Street in Bethesda (map). It serves tapas-sized sandwiches with 100 different filling options for under $3 each. Toppings includes traditional Spanish options like chorizo and manchego to Americanized options like pulled pork and cream cheese. The restaurant has planned locations for Arlington and The Yards.
Selection of pizza at We, the Pizza
Anyone who has spent much time in Crystal City will acknowledge a lack of places to eat. There will now be one more new restaurant to fill the void as Chef Spike Mendelsohn plans to open We, the Pizza at 2100 Crystal Drive (map) next to his Good Stuff Eatery, according to Eater. He hopes to open early in 2014.
Reality TV stars Bill and Giuliana Rancic have announced they are bringing their Italian steakhouse RPM Italian to D.C. Reports are conflicting about the location, initially touted as the former Buddha Bar space at 455 Massachusetts Avenue NW (map), but the property management company told Washington City Paper they were in talks with another restaurant group.
A Room with a View
The Torpedo Factory Food Pavilion (map) has long sat vacant, but it appears that the location may have found a tenant. According to Alexandria Patch it may house a single restaurant, Blackwall Hitch. With numerous renovations, the new restaurant would feature large windows to take advantage of the views of the Potomac, and would serve new American food made with local ingredients.
