Zengo Cycle closes in Bethesda, Gaithersburg

Zengo Cycle, a cycling and fitness center with studios in the greater Washington area, has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and is closing all locations, the company announced on its Facebook page.

Zengo Cycle had studios in Montgomery County at 4866 Cordell Ave. in Bethesda and 215 Kentlands Blvd. in Gaithersburg.

In its message on Tuesday, the company thanked its customers for supporting them for 11 years, and stated it wasn’t able to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve enjoyed being a gathering place to share accounts of our days, to celebrate big events in our lives, to make new friends, and most importantly to sweat together,” the message stated.

Ideal Image, a medical spa, plans to open in Bethesda Row on March 12, according to a spokeswoman.

The medical spa offers services such as laser hair removal, skin treatments, fat-loss treatment and skin tightening and lifting procedures

In an email to Bethesda Beat, Ideal Image Senior Director of Field Marketing Whitney Petrone wrote that the studio would open on March 12. The studio will be Ideal Image’s first location in the greater Washington area, she wrote.

Mrs. K’s owners might reopen restaurant

The owners of Mrs. K’s Tollhouse Restaurant are considering reopening the restaurant after COVID-19 restrictions are eased, the property’s landlord said on Tuesday.

The restaurant, at 9201 Colesville Road, closed last year after 90 years, and announced that the property was for lease.

Last week, people posted on social media that the “for lease” sign had been removed from the property.

Theo Margas, the property’s landlord, said in a phone interview on Tuesday that the owners might try to reopen the restaurant again after more COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. (The county is now allowing indoor dining at a 25% capacity.)

Margas declined to elaborate or identify the owners by name, stating that they had asked him not to say anything more.
