Quirky Rockville restaurant Quench is under new ownership.
Former owner Michael Holstein confirmed to Eater via email that he has sold the restaurant to a local ownership group (Eater has followed up for more specifics on the new owners). "It just felt like the right move at this time," said Holstein, who is also a television producer and will be able to focus on that part of his career.
Chef Ed Hardy will stick around to help the new owners transition, but the rest of the restaurant team is moving on for now. Eater will update when any more information about changes to the restaurant is available.
Update: The new ownership group's name is Vitune. Their plans for now are still to be determined, though they will likely maintain the restaurant's name and vibe, according to Holstein.
