Newly released renderings of Julii reveal a refined and modern backdrop for the all-day global comfort food restaurant landing in North Bethesda later this summer.

The debut standalone French-Mediterranean restaurant from the founders of fast-casual chain Cava is shooting to open in mid-September at the growing Pike & Rose complex (11915 Grand Park Avenue).

The team engaged local design firm HapstakDemetriou+ to craft the ideal day-to-night setting for Julii, which will pivot from a coffee shop to a more sophisticated eatery serving French fare and cocktails.

Glass walls will cover three sides of Julii, letting natural light flood in.

The architect is no stranger to creating spaces that resemble jewel boxes; the firm is also behind Navy Yard’s stunning glass-enclosed District Winery.

Glowing orbs will hover from above at Julii, with draped LED rope lights stretching across the ceiling. The centerpiece of the space is the bar, adorned with a gold leaf-lined dome. Other design accents include brass fixtures and green upholstery.

An open kitchen will showcase cooking of its newly-named executive chef Sasha Felikson, an alum of Asian-inspired eatery Doi Moi. He’ll be handling breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare, including croissants, shakshuka, and roast chicken.
