FREDDY'S LOBSTER CLOSES IN BETHESDA (PHOTOS)

Freddy's Lobster has closed on Cordell Avenue in Bethesda. Open since May 2011, the restaurant appeared just as the lobster roll fad was taking off in the DC area. Since then, Luke's Lobster has opened at Bethesda Row, food trucks have muscled into the category, area restaurants have added lobster rolls to their menus, and a Las Vegas-based lobster roll chain will soon open at the Dining Terrace at Westfield Montgomery Mall.

Freddy's was a side venture by next door neighbor Grapeseed's chef, Jeff Heineman. Known for its beer list and themed front patio, Freddy's will be missed even if lobster rolls aren't as exotic in Bethesda as they were in 2011.

Was in Montgomery Mall today and LobsterMe's sign says opening in October 2014... looks like they're running late.

Kraut reported this two days before you did.

Well that's just a dick thing to say. Bob has been relatively calm in his posts (comment responses aside) so why start it again? Oh wait. You must be an jackass. Or 12.

Will this closure increase the chances of the Lobster trucks returning to downtown Bethesda? They used to be here all the time.

Which ones and where and when did they show up?!

@ 4:37 AM -

It just seems like we all have to walk on pins and needles here, waiting for the next meltdown.

None of that melodrama at the House of Kraut.

And I'm not the one who went all pottymouth.
