Little Sesame is Coming to Bethesda Row

Co-founders Nick Wiseman, David Wiseman and Ronen Tenne plan to open a Little Sesame restaurant at 7118 Bethesda Lane, Bethesda, Maryland, later this year, proudly joining the stellar line up of restaurants and retail in downtown Bethesda.

The opening will be the hummus brand’s first outpost outside of DC. Little Sesame is excited to bring their freshly spun hummus, seasonal pita sandwiches to the neighborhood. The fan favorite shawarma-spiced rotisserie family meals will  join the menu as the perfect dinner choice along with a curated selection of quality beer, natural wine, and low ABV canned cocktails. Nick Wiseman says: We’ve always wanted to open a shop in Bethesda” notes Wiseman “We got such a warm welcome to our Sugar Fox Pop Up and the Bethesda Central Farm Market and we’re thrilled to plant permanent roots in this community.” 

The 1,200 sq ft shop will be designed by Brian Miller of Edit Lab at Streetsense, with 20 seats indoors, an additional 20 seats outdoors, and a designated area for pre-order pick up. We are pleased to welcome Little Sesame’s first Maryland location to Bethesda Row adding to the vibrant and growing mix of DC-based restaurants in the neighborhood,said Stuart Biel, Senior Vice President with Federal. The Bethesda outpost will join the two existing Little Sesame locations at 1828 L Street NW (opened Sept 2018) and 736 6th Street NW (opened March 2019).
