DC's Chercher Ethiopian Restaurant To Open In Bethesda, Maryland
Small Bites: Another Ethiopian Restaurant To Open in Bethesda
Plus: Three Kings Day at Jaleo; late brunch at Silver

A new Ethiopian restaurant is set to open in downtown Bethesda.
A sign outside 4921 Bethesda Ave. announced Chercher Ethiopian Cuisine and Bar is “coming soon” to the spot.
Until September, the address had been home to Suma Restaurant and Bar, a restaurant that opened in the spring of 2016 with American fare. A sign at the door this fall suggested the closure was temporary and due to renovations.
This summer, another Ethiopian restaurant was announced for Bethesda. The owners of Lucy, a restaurant in Silver Spring, will open a second restaurant in the former Grapeseed space. They intended to start service in the fall, but it hasn’t yet opened.
The sign for Chercher was first reported by local blogger Robert Dyer.
