New Restaurants Almost Ready at Pike & Rose

From the MoCo Show

Sports & Social

Sports & Social is best known for offering the “ultimate sports fan experience” — they typically have a large wall of tv displays so fans can watch many games at the same time. Per a press release, the Pike & Rose location will offer an 18 foot LED display.

In addition to being a place where patrons can enjoy watching games, Sports & Social will offer a scratch menu plus cocktails, other interactive games (their Atlanta location offers skeeball, table tennis, shuffle puck, air hockey and a golf simulator), special event days, live music, and more!

Sports & Social is replacing Del Frisco’s, which closed back in 2019. They plan to open this upcoming Fall.


The founders of Cava, Cava Mezze, and Julii are bringing their newest concept to Pike & Rose and they’re currently working hard to try to open in September (a couple photos of the progress can be seen below). Melina will open in the 909 Rose office building across from REI. According to Chef D, the inspiration behind Melina is the desire to share traditional Greek recipes and techniques, but with a creative spin.  Moshovitis also explained that after years in the restaurant industry, he has seen how Greek cooking has evolved and he wanted a new opportunity to showcase modern Greek cuisine. 

The team decided on Pike & Rose because “that neighborhood is awesome.”  The team has had a great experience with Julii in that area, and they love how the Pike & Rose community embraces interesting and unique concepts.

Chef D and the rest of the team cannot wait to share what they’ve been working on when they open and they want everyone to know that “everything we’ve done has really come straight from the heart.”

Not Your Mother’s Bagel

Call Your Mother plans to take over the space formerly occupied by Lucky, which shut its doors in November. They’re currently aiming for a summer opening. Call Your Mother currently has three DC locations as well as a trolley location in Bethesda. In addition, you can find their bagels at four different farmers markets throughout the DMV.

Moreover, occupants benefit from 30 percent more fresh air than required by code.

The mid-rise also includes a Wi-Fi-enabled rooftop amenity space with an outside terrace, bike storage and a touchless elevator system with PORT technology that automatically limits the number of occupants.

From the MoCo Show by Michelle Katz @pike.and.rozay

After being closed for over a year due to the pandemic, an assistant general manager at IPIC shared the luxury theater plans to reopen towards the end of this month.

Movie goers can expect some small changes to the IPIC experience. Temperatures will be taken at the door, seats in the theater will be 6 feet apart, and capacity will be reduced.

Pillows will no longer be offered, but blankets will still be available upon request. (The MoCo Show was told that the ticket prices will be adjusted to reflect this change.)

For a look at what a typical evening at IPIC was like before the pandemic hit, check out the MoCo Show post that they wrote a while back.

More information about IPIC can be found here.

Additionally, IPIC and their associated restaurant City Perch are both hiring right now. If you’re interested, you can check out their job listings here.
