"The lights are on, but nobody's home."
The story was something like that last night at the new location of Haandi in Bethesda, on Norfolk Avenue. A popular Indian restaurant, Haandi was forced to relocate because its previous home, a Fairmont Avenue shopping center, is being demolished.
Some lights were on, but as you can see from these photos, the grand opening won't be immediate. There still appears to be work to do on the interior. The old Uptown Deli stencils remain on the windows, as well.
Readers often ask about the status of Haandi, so I thought I would post this update. Don't expect an opening this weekend, but at least we are getting some light at the end of the tunnel, and the restaurant is making progress towards opening.
