At Annandale’s The Block, you can get Thai noodle soups alongside doughnut ice cream sandwiches, poke bowls, and chicken nuggets. But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming from a second, larger location of the food hall in North Bethesda’s Pike & Rose development, set to debut in late 2019.
The Block’s Maryland outpost will span 8,500 square feet with 250-to-300 seats, eight food stalls, and a bar. Although the exact lineup isn’t finalized, co-owner Arturo Mei says potential stalls will serve Asian street foods and Nashville hot chicken. They’re also looking to create a breakfast concept similar to Eggslut, an LA-based chain known for its brioche bun egg sandwiches (here with an Asian twist).
