Pines of Rome gearing up for next chapter in Bethesda (Photos)
Pines of Rome is preparing its new home on Cordell Avenue, after decades at its venerable location on Hampden Lane. Work is underway at 4918 Cordell Avenue, including new paint and the removal of former tenant Matuba's external sign.
A Bethesda institution since 1972, Pines of Rome last week sought a transfer of its liquor license to the new location from Montgomery County. As of last night, the current Pines of Rome location at 4709 Hampden Lane was still fully open and serving white pizza, fresh seafood and other favorites. I will of course let you know when the actual move happens.
