HalfSmoke opens at Montgomery Mall in Bethesda (Photos + Menu)

has opened in the Dining Terrace food court at Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda. Despite being announced long after the planned Rockville Town Square location of HalfSmoke, the mall kiosk has opened before the Rockville restaurant - so Rockvillans can now head over to the mall to see what the HalfSmoke hype has been about. The menu here features their popular sausages and fried chicken, wood-grilled wings, side items like crab fries and loaded tater tots, and a short but sweet lineup of desserts. Milkshakes are joined by a selection of adult beverages - beer, wine and a surprisingly-varied cocktail list.  

“We are excited to be entering the Bethesda market in an area that affords excellent shopping, good restaurant options, a movie theater and ample parking,” Andre McCain, owner of HalfSmoke, said in a statement Wednesday.  “We’re confident that our new HalfSmoke location will become a go-to dining choice for those visiting and experiencing all the Mall has to offer. It is our second venture this year at the Westfield Montgomery Mall, as we opened sister breakfast concept, Butter Me Up, which offers all day breakfast, artisan coffee, fresh juices, and breakfast inspired cocktails.”

  1. Menu looks bad. Business will probably fold soon enough, like all the rest. Mall life is a hard gig these days…
