Vapiano signed a lease with Federal Realty to open a corporate-owned Vapiano restaurant in Bethesda Row, Maryland. This will make the fifth corporate-owned Vapiano in the Washington, D.C., metro area and Vapiano’s first location in Maryland. Vapiano will open in a new Federal Realty building, adjacent to an Equinox fitness facility and will join Jaleo, Le Pain Quotidien, Mon Ami Gabi, Raku, and several other successful restaurants already in Bethesda Row. The 5,400 square foot Vapiano will seat 200-plus guests, with space that includes a large patio and lounge area. Vapiano has retained Matteo Thun, an award-winning designer from Hamburg Germany, to head up design on the Bethesda Row location.

“Bethesda Row is the crown jewel of Bethesda. We have been waiting for years to get the right location and we can’t wait to open,” says Bill Bessette, CEO of Vapiano.
