Bold Bite in its current location.
Bold Bite to relocate by start of May
Bold Bite, a Fairmont Avenue burger restaurant, is soon to move to its new Bethesda location two blocks away, a bigger space on the corner of Norfolk and Cordell avenues in the former Smashburger spot. Alonso Roche, a co-owner of the restaurant, said he plans on moving the restaurant on May 2 or 3. The restaurant would likely be closed for one day during the move, he said. The new space expands the restaurant’s seating capacity from 18 to 60 seats, and Bold Bite will offer new menu items such as falafel burgers and unique milkshakes. “It’s the same as what we try to do with everything at Bold Bite—it’s a little bit different,” Roche said.

Community is opening for breakfast next Monday. Chef Dale Schnell said the Woodmont Triangle restaurant originally offered breakfast when it opened in November, but scaled back in recent months while adjusting to new staff and reviewing its hours. Community will open 8 a.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. on weekends. The diner has a pick-up window where customers can order $1 coffee and $1 donuts.
Wine dinner at Jaleo
In a five-course dinner event, Jaleo Bethesda is hosting wine experts to present special and rare wines paired with tapas on Tuesday. Spanish winemaker Manuel Manzanque and Javier Baquero of Grapes of Spain are leading the interactive dinner, in which a few cases of 1000 Cepas, a Cencibel wine made from just 1,000 vines, will be served. Registration is $75.
