Redwood Set to Open in Bethesda

Redwood Restaurant, the sister restaurant to Georgetown's Mendocino Grille and Capitol Hill's Sonoma, will open its doors next Monday, July 21st.

With a menu based locally and its theme inspired "by and committed to the farm-to-table movement that grew out of California and the Pacific Northwest in the 1960's", Redwood will be headed up by Executive Chef Andrew Kitko, who comes to DC from San Francisco.

Redwood will feature "seasonal, naturally-raised and often locally-sourced ingredients on a frequently-changing menu; wood-grilled and wood-oven based cooking methods will highlight the straightforward style intended to showcase the carefully selected ingredients." Not to be outdone, expect an impressive wine selection of around 125 wines, sixteen of them by the glass.

As is the style of the day, Redwood will be a "green" restaurant, with "sustainable, reclaimed materials" throughout the restaurant.
