1) Rockville: Pizza chain Mellow Mushroom will open a location in Rockville Town Square. This will be the chain's third area location, and the restaurant will be about 5,600 square feet. Expect an opening later this year. [PLYWOOD]

2) Silver Spring: Roy Rogers will open in Aspen Hill. It used to have a location there years ago, according to the East Moco blog. [PLYWOOD]

3) Downtown Olivia's Diner is expected to open July 1, according to Borderstan. But plans to offer 24 hour service won't happen immediately. [PLYWOOD]

4) Alexandria: Could Urbanbelly (or a similar restaurant) be coming to Alexandria? There's a Craigslist ad indicating a "concept driven by" the Chicago restaurant group is coming here. The contact information on another listing on Poached matches an ad for hiring at Trattoria Villagio, but Eater hasn't confirmed that the restaurant is involved. Attempts to reach the restaurant group have been unsuccessful. [PRE-PLYWOOD]
