The Collection

The Collection in Chevy Chase, which debuted as a high-end shopping area in 2005, is now a finely tailored pedestrian- and family-friendly destination. As part of the transformation by developer Chevy Chase Land Company, more reasonably priced stores and restaurants have come into the space. Replacing higher-end retailers like Bulgari, Cartier and Jimmy Choo are pop-ups such as The Palm & The Ivy and Nic+Zoe, both clothing stores. Little Beet Table, which serves an all-gluten-free menu, opened in November. Coming soon is Junction Bistro, Bar & Bakery. Community events fill the calendar, including Fall Flicks, an open-air movie series in the new tiered plaza; Nosh & Notes, a summer lunch series; and A Collection of Frights, an annual Halloween bash that partners with Children’s National Hospital. With Metro access and a fresh and friendly face, The Collection has rebranded itself as a one-stop shop.
