Editorial Review

Bo Blair describes what will separate his Bethesda restaurant from the other Jetties locations. First off, he says, they're doing a "really cool kids' menu," which includes not just the typical dishes (chicken fingers, mac 'n' cheese) but also a whole submenu of fruits and veggies as well as a make-your-own sundae bar.

What's more, the adult dinner menu will be more robust in Bethesda; It will expand beyond the shop's sandwiches-and-salad fare.

"Everything's coming in a Le Creuset pot," he says, singling out his partner's recipes for chicken pot pie and lasagna. "So we're doing, like, seven different kinds of dinner pots. ...We're really kind of pumped to do more dinner out there, because we have beer and wine, and we've never had beer and wine at Foxhall [one of the D.C. locations], so we've never really pushed the whole dinner aspect of it."
