Kema by Kenaki sushi bar "coming soon" at Cabin John Village in Potomac (Photos)

Kema by Kenaki
, a new sushi bar concept from the owners of Kenaki Sushi Counter in Gaithersburg, has run into many delays over the last couple of years. But opening day for the new establishment, located at 11325 Seven Locks Road at Cabin John Village in Potomac, may finally be coming into view. The interior is nearing completion, and dining tables are already stacked inside the space. They are currently hiring staff. Stay tuned for an opening date!

Update on Colony Grill pizzeria at Cabin John Village in Potomac (Photos)

I have a big update on the Colony Grill at 11325 Seven Locks Road in Potomac. Look at the incredible progress that has been made inside just over the last several weeks. A new sign has been attached on the exterior of the pizzeria, as well. Furniture is still in the wrapper inside, and the outdoor patio space has not yet been set up. Stay tuned for an opening date! Here is a look at the progress of work over the last few weeks, in chronological order:

Tequila Modern Mexican restaurant opening in Rockville

Earlier this week, the signs came down at the shuttered Chuy's in Rockville. The good news is that a sign has gone up for a new Mexican restaurant in Rockville Town Center. Tequila Modern Mexican is opening soon at 11 N. Washington Street. It is a small but rapidly-expanding chain, beginning in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and opening new locations here, and in North Carolina and Kansas. The chain is small, but the menu is not, with all of the standard dishes you would expect alongside some unique ones.

Another delay for Japong Bakery reopening in Rockville

You'll have to keep dreaming of a cream puff from Japong Bakery for a little while longer. The popular Rockville bakery announced this morning that it will have to postpone its reopening at the Ritchie Center - which was scheduled for today, June 1 - once again. "We are still waiting on certain items that need to be taken care of behind the scenes here," it said in a statement. "Please stay tuned for an updated reopening date, as we are in a temporary holding pattern. We are very proud of our new store, and cannot wait to share it with customers when we can! Until then, we apologize for the inconvenience."

Chuy's signage finally removed in Rockville

It took more than two years, but the signage has finally been removed from the abandoned Chuy's restaurant at 12266 Rockville Pike at Federal Plaza. No more will out-of-state drivers pull in to the shopping center for an Elvis Presley Memorial Combo, only to find themselves rattling a locked door. The Tex-Mex restaurant opened in October 2016, and remained untouched like a post-apocalyptic time capsule years after its pandemic-era closure. Why the chain gave up on Rockville when it is still packing customers in at other area locations remains a mystery. An Olive Garden would be the perfect tenant for this space!

Daboba opening shop in Rockville

, a Malaysia-based tea chain, is opening a store in Rockville. It will be at 1079 Rockville Pike, in the Talbott Center. Daboba sets itself apart in a crowded field by offering unique flavors, textures and concepts in its beverages. Your drink might have giant boba, a scoop of bobazilla vanilla ice cream, or mochi on top. Daboba also offers limited-edition or seasonal beverages for Halloween, Christmas, and even boy band BTS. This will be Daboba's first location in the Mid-Atlantic U.S.

Rockville Baskin Robbins grand opening this Saturday, June 3

Rockville has been one Baskin Robbins ice cream parlor short since their Congressional Plaza location closed in late 2019. That is now remedied with the new Baskin Robbins store at 1079 Seven Locks Road. It will be celebrating with a grand opening event this Saturday, June 3, 2023, from 12:00 - 4:00 PM. There will be a DJ, prizes, giveaways, and - of course - 31 flavors. Mention this Facebook ad below to get $2 scoops during the event. If you need a recommendation, it's definitely Baseball Nut season!

Oreo Frappe returns to McDonald's in Rockville

The Oreo Frappe has returned to the McCafe beverage menu at McDonald's. Originally released 7 years ago, it is scheduled to pop back up on menus nationwide May 17, 2023. But it appears to be arriving early here in Montgomery County. Check your local McDonald's location for this blend of mocha and coffee flavors, Oreo cookie pieces, and whipped cream, available for a limited time only.

No Regrets Pizza opening in White Flint

No Regrets Pizza
is coming soon to the White Flint area of Montgomery County. The pizzeria will be in the ground floor of the Harwood Flats apartment building at 5454 Nicholson Lane in North Bethesda. No Regrets is a new, locally-owned business, not a chain. It's unclear if the name was inspired by the famous "bitcoin pizza guy" who claimed he had "no regrets" over frivolously spending his cryptocurrency haul that would later have been worth $365 million. But we can be sure the name doesn't refer to the owners of the adjacent White Flint Mall property!

Capo Deli opens at Cabin John Village in Potomac

Capo Deli
