In the Cava Mezze Grill/ShopHouse era, you know the drill by now: Choose a starch (rice or japchae), add a protein or vegetable (beef, chicken, pork, tofu, kimchi, arugula, edamame, to name a few), and then add their signature spicy sauce or sesame soy sauce.
But wait, there's more. You can put that in a taco or wrap instead of a bowl.
Still more: How about crispy wings or chicken strips, Bonchon fans? And 6 dipping sauces to go with them?
For side dishes, choose from soup or dumplings.
B|Bop|Q plans to open in Bethesda in November. This will be its first location in America, with more to follow in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Honolulu. Make sure to remind your friends in the Golden State that you'll be trying B|Bop|Q before them.

Some of the groundwork has been laid by the existing and future segments of the Montrose Parkway itself, and a proposed Bus Rapid Transit system along the Pike. No Metro station is located within the sector plan's boundaries, but the location is between the Twinbrook and White Flint stations on the Red Line. Planners will review all of these, but also address the need for better pedestrian and bicycle connectivity between Rockville, White Flint 2 and White Flint. The latter two areas are now branded as the Pike District by Montgomery County.
Properties under study by planners for the WF2 Sector Plan include Montrose Crossing, Pike Center, Loehmann’s Plaza, and the industrial properties east of the railroad tracks along Parklawn Drive. The Midtown Bethesda North condos, and the adjacent Target store, are harbingers of what the future may bring to these commercial properties.
Issues planners want to address in the sector plan process are transportation and connectivity, community facilities (in particular, capacity - or lack thereof - in the Walter Johnson school cluster), environmental sustainability, and land uses and urban design.
One public kick-off meeting was held on June 25, 2015. You can review the public feedback I reported on from that meeting the next day.
A series of workshops will be held this fall to obtain more feedback from residents, businesses and landowners. Planners will present a working draft of the plan to the Montgomery County Planning Board in the spring of 2016, and a draft plan to the Montgomery County Council and Executive by August 2016. The Council will vote on the plan, and a necessary Sectional Map Amendment, by summer 2017.
The next step in the process will be planners' presentation of the Scope of Work document to the Board on Thursday, September 3, 2015.
A fatal auto accident has closed Massachusetts Avenue between Sangamore Road and Goldsboro Road. Use MacArthur Boulevard or River Road instead.
