Two anxious commenters are curious to know when Bethesda/Chevy Chase neighborhood restaurant Persimmon will reopen. The restaurant closed in July for renovations, in order to become more of a bistro-like restaurant. It originally hoped to reopen in October. Here's what Persimmon spokeswoman Megan Darnall had to say.
Persimmon hopes to re-open by the end of January but it could be February, unexpected set backs always happen with renovations. It is looking good so far and we are anxious to get back up and running as soon as possible.
