From The MoCoShow

Back in April of 2018 it was announced that The Block ( food hall was crossing the river and coming to Pike & Rose. (They have a location in Annandale, VA, too.)

We’re told The Block currently plans to open its MoCo location on November 22.

The 8,500 square foot The Block, located at 967 Rose Avenue, will feature an innovative space with communal tables and will offer diners Asian street food, Taiwanese Snocream, Hawaiian poke bowls by Pokéworks, and more.

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).

The space itself will incorporate shipping containers with mezzanine seating on top, and communal tables throughout the hall. String lights and lots of greenery are designed to give the place an outdoor feel like night markets in Asia. It’s not official yet, but the layout may possibly include a couple karaoke rooms.
