Bethesda Curry Kitchen - Authentic Addition to Bethesda MD Food Scene
Lise Howe, Assoc. Broker and Attorney Licensed in DC, MD, VA, (Keller Williams Capital Properties)
Several years ago I read in Time or Newseek that Bethesda, MD has more restaurants per capita than any other city in the United States - including Manhattan. That seemed like an overstatement - but we definitely do like our restaurants in Bethesda.The Bethesda Curry Kitchen opened recently at 4860 Cordell Avenue, a quiet street on the north side of Old Georgetown Road. The restaurant celebrates the cuisine of Hyderabad, a city known for its Mughlai cuisine.  It has been on our list of places that we wanted to try and since yesterday was a day devoted to running errands and the like, carry out seemed to be the perfect idea for dinner. We picked pretty traditional foods for our first visit to Bethesda Curry Kitchen.  We had samosas and crispy spinach to start.  The samosas seemed light and the crispy spinach was delicious.  We also got chicken Saag (with spinach), tandoor shrimp and an exceptional okra dish with dried mango.  Just click here to see the rest of the menu!The wait staff seemed like a mom and pop family run business with a darling little two year old wandering through the restaurant.   The food was authentic and delicious and the restaurant decor was pleasant.  I wish them well!After you have a great meal at Bethesda Curry Kitchen, give the Lise Howe Group a call to start your home search at 240-401-5577 or click here to find your perfect home.

VACE's, Best Carryout Pizza in Bethesda MD
Lise Howe, Assoc. Broker and Attorney Licensed in DC, MD, VA, (Keller Williams Capital Properties)
Address: 4705 Miller Ave, Bethesda, MD 20814 Phone:(301) 654-6367 Hours Mon -Fri 9am-9pm Sat          9am-8pm Sun         10am-5pm Website: www.vaceitaliandeli.com Where to grab that slice of Pie? My favorite place in Bethesda for carry out pizza is Vace Italian Delicatessen, hidden away on a block long Miller Avenue just off Wisconsin Avenue and behind the Starbucks and the Capitol One Bank. Vace's is known in Bethesda and Northwest Washington for its pizza - whether by the slice or by the whole pie.  There always are some pizzas available by the slice just waiting for me to come in with a growling stomach. Happily Vace's is in the heart of Bethesda MD, just a few blocks from great Bethesda Md Condominiums such as The Christopher Condominiums, The Lionsgate Condominiums, The Adagio, City Commons of Bethesda and Kenwood Forest. My favorite at times like that is the white pizza with lots of onions - lots of onions.  If I am feeling generous, I will take home a slice or two of the sausage pizza for my husband and the spinach pizza for my daughter. When we are ordering a whole pizza, I always choose the pizza with extra mozzarella, Kalamata olives and sun dried tomatoes.  But there is so much more, especially in the freezer cases that line one wall. Take your pick of prepared Italian classics including lasagna, manicotti and eggplant parmigiana,as well as veal and cheese ravioli and a variety of frozen sauces like Alfredo and Bolognese. Fresh foods are not forgotten either. Another set of glass refrigerator cases are the go to source for great proscuitto, mortadella and salami and the delicious olives in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors.  Cheese is here too - home made fresh mozzarella, parmesan and more. I get hungry just thinking about going to Vace's! Bethesda MD has lots of special local businesses that contribute to making our town special. We are constantly adding info and links for all our favorite places that make Bethesda Md such a great place to live.  Check out all available properties close to Vace's!
