Last week a few of The DC Moms’ Writers were treated to dinner at a new restaurant called Quench in Rockville, Maryland. Ironically, I had been there twice previously to that night. Once for drinks and dessert with my husband and once for brunch with my son.
Quench bills itself as that rare restaurant that is a little bit of everything. Craft cocktails, creative cuisine, luxurious setting, really good food. Oh, and you can bring the kids. OR NOT.
All 5 writers, myself, Jessica, Sandie, Robin, and Jill, all loved the restaurant. While we each had different favorites, we all agreed the food was excellent. We had crabcakes, flat bread, these incredibly addictive hush puppies, an amazing watermelon salad (pictured above), chickpea tacos, and an amazing selection of desserts. There was nothing left at the end of the night.
They also treated us to a sampling of their signature cocktails. I loved the Peppered Mango, a spicy mango drink.
My family had been there for brunch a few weeks previously, during the power outage, and my son loved the restaurant. They serve a bubble gum lemonade that he has not stopped talking about. He calls it the “bubble gum lemonade restaurant” and begs daily to go there. The restaurant does not have a traditional kids menu, but will make anything on the menu more child friendly, and has a handful of “kid” staples like pasta and grilled cheese the will always make.
My husband and I are a big believer in date nights. And we will often go downtown, but sometimes you don’t have enough time and you don’t feel like driving into Bethesda and not being able to park. Quench has a parking lot, next to it. And it is free. You can sit and drink and talk and eat really good food. Or you want somewhere you can bring the kids that has decent food. Quench is a great addition to the Montgomery County dinning scene. There is something on the menu for everyone.
