The 6,300-square-foot restaurant will offer Mexican inspired cuisine with craveable twists on the classics. This will be Nada’s fifth location and first east coast location.
“Federal Realty searches the country and beyond to find unique first-to-market concepts. Nada is a fresh take on a popular restaurant category and the perfect addition to the Pike & Rose neighborhood,” said Stuart Biel, Vice President, Mixed-Use Leasing.
The North Bethesda restaurant will feature a casual, dynamic bar space and seating for 140 in its dining room that offers expansive views into the energetic kitchen led by Chef Ford Barsi.
Nada’s design juxtaposes industrial elements like concrete columns with organic custom ceramic light fixtures and hand-painted tile from Mexico. A variety of lush tropical plant installations encompass the space, including a planter box clad in reclaimed wood from a 1920s church in Athens, OH that divides the cantina from the main dining room. An outdoor patio will seat 50 guests as they sip Nada’s signature margaritas beneath a canopy of string lights in the warmer months.
Nada offers a diverse and shareable mix of traditional Mexican and more modern dishes with seasonal cocktails, local craft brews and their signature handcrafted margarita, the Nadarita. The menu ranges from house made chips and guacamole, to Caramelized Cauliflower tacos, Spicy Crab Benedict, and Crispy Skirted “Saganaki” Quesadilla. Nada will serve lunch and dinner daily, and weekend brunch.
“We describe Nada as a ‘kickass Mexican restaurant that is approachable, energetic, and casual’ and as such we believe Pike & Rose is the perfect location of our first East Coast outpost,” CEO of Boca Restaurant Group David Falk. “Federal Realty has curated a wonderful neighborhood and we look forward to being part of it.”
