Three new additions to Federal Realty's Pike & Rose development on Rockville Pike will cover a broad range of cuisines.
M Street Kitchen and Stella Barra Pizzeria are not only owned by the same company, but are both from Southern California.
M Street Kitchen offers an eclectic mashup of American, Mexican and Asian dishes. Burgers, tacos, miso-glazed salmon, Evil Thai Princess salad and fresh sushi all share the same menu.
M Street's bar is just as diverse, pouring beer, wine, sake and a signature Sangria.
Stella Barra sounds like just a pizza place, but aspires to be upscale. Think Porchetta and Fennel pizzas, rather than sausage and pepperoni. Their Hollywood and Santa Monica locations not only serve "handcrafted" cocktails, but are known for their house-made desserts. Save room for the pot de creme or massive bacon-chocolate chip cookie.

Want something healthier?
The Protein Bar is just what the doctor ordered.
Even the beverages can give you a protein boost at this establishment.
The Protein Bar, which has a Penn Quarter location in the District, is also highly accommodating of diners with food allergies (taking special precautions to prevent cross-contamination of allergens during food preparation, for example), or who seek vegetarian and gluten-free options.
You'll find juices, smoothies, salads and bowls heavy on meat, and a variety of dishes made with superfood quinoa.
