Brian Vasile said the bar and restaurant at 4866 Cordell Ave. won’t be open on Jan. 21, as reported by a Bethesda Urban Partnership representative at a neighborhood advisory group this morning.
But it should debut soon after. Vasile, who with his partners owns Grand Central in Adams Morgan, didn’t want to put a date on the opening just in case.
The restaurant is taking over a space that has been notorious for high turnover. Bubby’s deli lasted less than a year. In November, Vasile said he thinks the prohibition-era style bar and partnership with respected area chef Andrea Pace can help buck that trend.
