Terrain Café in Bethesda hopes to reopen this summer

Terrain Café, the restaurant inside Anthropologie & Co. at 4801 Bethesda Ave. in Bethesda Row, is targeting a summer reopening according to its parent company.

Terrain Café, which opened in 2018, temporarily closed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to questions from Bethesda Beat about the reopening timeline for the Bethesda restaurant, parent company URBN wrote a statement that said it is “currently assessing our re-opening timelines in regard to local restriction changes and are looking to re-open this summer.”

Montgomery County began allowing indoor dining at full capacity on Friday.

Kevin Ettenson, the executive chef of Terrain Café in Bethesda, wrote in a Facebook message to Bethesda Beat on May 24 that the restaurant is planning to reopen, but he wasn’t sure of the date.
