September 18, 2015 | by

While many people may not think of the mall as a culinary destination, Westfield Montgomery Mall offers shoppers and diners a wide array of delicious food options. And the dining scene continues to grow with new restaurants now open or coming soon!

In addition to favorites such as CRAVE American Kitchen and Sushi Bar and the newly opened Naples Ristorante E Pizzeria, two more restaurants are scheduled to open at the mall. Rockville, Maryland-based Shanghai 66 will be opening soon, serving up dumplings, Szechuan-style beef, braised duck and more. Tara Thai will also be welcoming hungry shoppers with tasty Thai dishes such as curries, pad thai and a variety of rice and noodles. Scheduled to open in early 2016.

Westfield Montgomery Mall is walking distance to EYA’s new Montgomery Row townhome community in Bethesda and just moments from Grosvenor Heights elevator townhomes.
