Bethesda magazine reports that Mekonnen Abraham, the co-founder of Lucy restaurant in neighboring Silver Spring, Maryland, plans to open a modified version of his Ethiopian eatery this fall in the space recently vacated by wine bar Grapeseed. The latest iteration of Lucy is expected to serve gluten-free injera and over a dozen vegan dishes along with core offerings from the flagship location.
