It has been over two years since we let you know that True Food Kitchen would be taking the place of Joe’s Crab Shack in Rio.
Originally slated for a late 2020 opening, we spoke with a team member back in March who told us the restaurant would not open until 2022. Earlier today, Rio doubled down on the timeframe as they advertised a Spring 2022’arrival for the restaurant.
The True Food Kitchen website also lists Spring 2022 as the expected opening date.
True Food Kitchen is a health-focused restaurant chain with 23 locations in 10 U.S. states (most locations in California and Texas).
The restaurant focuses on serving healthy, seasonal, sustainable, and organic food with plenty of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.
This will be the second MoCo location, with the first being at 7100 Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda.
