You are so close to the Woodmont Triangle shopping area with great restaurants and shops. There is an iconic restaurant there – the Bethesda Diner that I remember from my childhood, but it has been joined by other great choices like the Woodmont Grill, Jetties for wonderful sandwiches and salads, BGR for great burgers, and House of Milae for Korean food. The wonderful thing about Woodmont Triangle is that most of the restaurants and shops are independently owned – and there are lots of moderately priced ethnic restaurants. In a sense, Woodmont Triangle is old Bethesda while the area south of Old Georgetown, with Anthropologie, Lululemon, 5 Guys, the Apple Store, Blue Mercury, and Bonobos is the location for the national stores. Those stores are just two or three blocks away from the Chase to the south.
Shopping is easy here with Blue House and Random Harvest for home design, and Reddz for repurposed clothing. There are lots of great reasons for a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood!
