It appears a new Italian grill will be filling the former Kraze Burger spot across from Bethesda Row.

Gusto Italian Grill has launched a website listing its location at 4733 Elm Street in Bethesda and announcing "locations opening soon."

Two weeks ago the ‘for lease’ signs were taken down at the location and landlord Lenny Greenberg, of Greenhill Capital Corporation, said he had signed an undisclosed tenant.

Gusto appears to be a an Italian fast-casual concept where customers can choose either an “Italian burrito,” pasta bowl or a salad bowl, and add things like meats, vegetables and cheeses.

“Our signature item is the Gusto Italian Roll-Up,” says the restaurant’s website. “These roll-ups are made using an assembly line and are built with either pasta or beans, grilled chicken, steak, meatballs (ground beef or turkey) or Italian pulled pork, various vegetables & cheese toppings and a signature sauce. Everything is wrapped up in an organic Italian flatbread that resembles a tortilla.”

The website or affiliated social media sites do not currently have an opening date listed. The restaurant’s corporate offices are based in Hoboken, N.J., according to the website.
