A new food hall where customers will use a mobile application to place their orders for pickup and delivery is expected to arrive in Bethesda in early 2021.

The food hall, called Ensemble, is scheduled to fill the space at 4856 Cordell Ave. in the first quarter of next year, spokeswoman Leah Frelinghuysen of the public relations firm Monarchy PR wrote in an email to Bethesda Beat on Monday.

Frelinghuysen wrote that Ensemble will offer delivery, takeout and curbside pickup options. Those are allowed under Montgomery County’s current executive order, which prohibits indoor dining.

Ensemble will go into the space previously occupied by South Street Steaks, which closed its brick-and-mortar establishment in 2018. The cheesesteak business now operates a food truck in Bethesda.

The food hall is the latest concept of Washington, D.C.-based Salis Holdings, which also operates Ted’s Bulletin, Federalist Pig and Sidekick Bakery, among others.

News of Ensemble’s possible arrival was previously reported by Robert Dyer.
