Suma Restaurant + Bar opening in Bethesda (Photos+menu), Pi Pizzeria opening 4 PM today
The outdoor deck was crowded despite the quiet launch. In terms of expectations and hours today, keep in mind it is a soft opening, but the menu and makeover look great.
There is an emphasis on farm-sourced ingredients, and a mixture of popular appetizers like oysters, deviled eggs and wings combined with sophisticated ones like Chicken Liver Parfait and pan-seared foie gras.
Entrees are much the same, with whole bronzini and steak frites sharing space with duck confit sausage pizza with smoked gruyere, scallions, caramelized onions and hoisin sauce. Pricing isn't too bad when you consider you are getting side dishes you might have to put out $8 for on other restaurant menus. See below for the menu and wine list (click to enlarge).

Also, don't forget Bethesda Row Restaurant Week 2016 starts today at lunchtime.
