After several delays, We, the Pizza, the latest restaurant venture from Spike Mendelsohn, will open today. Originally scheduled to open Monday, July 12th and then Monday, July 19th, we, the public will finally be able to taste the long awaited pies.
Apparently Mussel Bar of Bethesda also experienced some false openings. Supposedly opening on July 21st, the restaurant opened a day late due to staff training.
The food trucks just keep rolling into town. This week, three more food trucks announced their arrival.
- Eat Wonky: Will serve Poutine, a Canadian dish made out of french fries, gravy and cheese curds. Look for Eat Wonky in mid-August.
- CapMac: Will serve pasta, which will include mac n' cheese (obviously).
- Fry Captain: Will serve french fries and milkshakes. Hopefully the servers will be wearing poodle skirts and leather jackets because I'm feeling a 1950s flash back coming on. Look for Fry Captain during the first week of August.
