Burger Restaurant To Replace Community Diner in Bethesda

Upscale diner in Woodmont Triangle closed Wednesday


The Community diner in Bethesda closed on Wednesday.


Community, the upscale diner that opened in Bethesda last November, closed Wednesday and will be replaced by a new restaurant serving burgers, cocktails and craft beer.

Community owner Marc Bucher said his yet-to-be named new restaurant will open in a few weeks and will serve “the best burgers in Bethesda, at reasonable prices.”

Bucher, who started BGR, a fast-casual burger chain, and co-owns the Medium Rare steak and frites restaurants, said the new eatery also will feature salads and several of the most popular menu items from Community, including “boozy milkshakes,” “Tot-chos” and Smith Island Cake. Donuts and coffee will continue to be available at the walk-up window, he said.

The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner on weekdays, and brunch and dinner on weekends.

Bucher, a Bethesda resident, said Community was “plagued by tremendous service and training issues.” He added: “I wanted Community to be all things to all people, but it really couldn’t be.”
