The Sushi Ko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate.

Degustation presents a provocative menu of Iberian, French and American influenced cuisine in a dynamic yet intimate bar setting, with an open kitchen. The local market inspired menu pairs beautifully with the hand selected wine offering.

The newest Chef Geoff's restaurant is the go-to destination on the Pike. Located across from Montrose Crossing, Chef Geoff's Rockville is the perfect spot for a business lunch or family dinner in a friendly and energetic atmosphere. Only minutes from the Strathmore, we're the perfect location for pre-theater dining. A three course Sunset Special is offered daily from 4-6:30 pm for $23.95. Need a break from work? There is no better place than our newly renovated bar for all-day happy hour Monday and Tuesday. Or join us for our ever-growing Bacon Bar on Wednesday and Thursday where we truly believe bacon goes great with everything. Have a case of the Mondays? We have the solution with ½ price bottles of wine every Monday. We are excited to finally be a part of your neighborhood and hope that you will come join us soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff

Brasserie Beck is a contemporary European style brasserie in the "new urbanist" Kentland's community. The original location was opened by critically acclaimed, chef/owner Robert Wiedmaier in NW Washington D.C. in 2007. Wiedmaier stays true to his Belgian roots creating and cooking casual, affordable fare in the "brasserie style" of serving all day from lunch to late night. Beck is an ideal place for a quick meal anytime of the day; oysters from the raw bar, moules & frites with a trio of homemade dipping sauces, a Charcuterie Plate or the classic Belgian mainstay of Beef Carbonnade or Mountain Trout Amandine. Beck's stunning and spacious bar boasts the area's most comprehensive Belgian beer list outside Belgium with 17 draught beers and 150 offered by the bottle. This location also features an outdoor patio and sizable private dining space. We welcome everyone to the newest Brasserie Beck in Maryland.

Chef Mike Isabella opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella draws inspiration from Northern Greece to create a menu of spreads, breads, vegetables and other small plates, including his signature wood-grilled octopus. Two wood-fire grills with rotating spits and a large oven for stone-baked flat breads service the 160-seat restaurant. Guests enjoy carvings from whole animals that have been spit-roasted all day, including lamb, goat, duck, chicken, and suckling pig. Kapnos is open for dinner seven nights a week.

"Kapnos offers affordable, delicious mezze entrees for guest to share and explore. The staff works hard to make sure that dishes arrive in a timely fashion and carefully observe tables to remove dishes only after the last morsel is eaten or asked to do so. We tried the smoked eggplant spread, monkfish, lamb, and horta. We were not disappointed - the dishes looked good and were tasty. My guest told me he was full at the end of the meal."
