Markham's Bar and Grill is scheduled to open for the first time today at 11:00 AM for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is located at 7141 Wisconsin Avenue, in downtown Bethesda.
See photos below to review the menu (you can click on the photos to enlarge them for more detail).
Interesting items on the menu include Vietnamese bánh mì, Pakistani Tacos, and a bacon duck burger. Speaking of burgers, the most intriguing menu item for me is a burger called The Mo. With a triple-decker bun, 2 burgers, shredded lettuce, dill pickle slices and "Mo Sauce," you might be tempted to think it's a Big Mac. Actually, it's inspired by the Bethesda-related burger that inspired the Big Mac: the legendary Mighty Mo, served at Marriott's Bethesda-based Hot Shoppes restaurant chain. I ate quite a few Mighty Mos while watching buildings at the Bethesda Metro site being constructed, in the Hot Shoppes at the corner of Wisconsin and East-West Highway.
