North Bethesda Places

TripWhat's travel guide to North Bethesda; our list of the best things to see, including The National Institutes of Health, Strathmore Hall and White Flint Mall.
  • The best place in North Bethesda: The National Institutes of Health

    The National Institutes of Health

    9000 Rockville Pike
    The mammoth collection of buildings housing the majority of the nation's government bio-research. Admission of non-employees to the grounds requires a security screening (since the 9/11 attacks and the later anthrax mailings, there have been worries about the security of the bio-weapons research programs here).

  • Strathmore Hall

    Strathmore Hall

    5301 Tuckerman Lane North Bethesda, MD 20852-3385
    A fantastic hall for seeing concerts because of its state-of-the-art acoustics and great seating. Even the last row has great sound and viewing lines. Check the schedule to find everything from classical music symphonies to rock concerts to kids music performances. The Metro Red Line "Grosvenor-Strathmore" station is adjacent to the facility.

  • White Flint Mall

    White Flint Mall

    11301 Rockville Pike
    White Flint is North Bethesda, Maryland’s premier shopping destination featuring Bloomingdales, AMC/Loews Theatres, Lord & Taylor and more.
  • LDS Temple Visitor Center

    9900 Stoneybrook Dr
    Since you can't go in the temple, there's a need for a nice visitor center, and they've done a nice job with it. It hosts regular events (see website for calendar) and movie screenings throughout the day every day of the year, in addition to a permanent multimedia display. The building itself and the grounds surrounding it are immaculate and pretty.
    food nearby
  • Rock Bottom Brewery

    Rock Bottom Brewery

    7900 Norfolk Ave
    Su-Th 11AM-1AM, F-Sa 11AM-2AM. The food is fine, but this small but national chain is best visited for the excellent beers on tap, which can be ordered in sampling glasses. DJs show up F-Sa nights, but this isn't really the sort of place for that. Great people watching from the outdoor seating in good weather.
  • Caddies on Cordell

    Caddies on Cordell

    4922 Cordell Ave
    A sports bar.
  • Passage To India

    4931 Cordell Ave
    11:30AM-2:30PM, 5:30PM-10PM daily. $16-30. The often fiery cuisine here is some of the best Indian food you'll find anywhere in the metro area, and it's also attractive, rather quiet, and has reliably excellent service. If you are up for a challenge, try to finish one of their vindaloos without asking them to dull down the spice level.
  • South Street Steaks

    South Street Steaks

    4856 Cordell Ave
    Su-Th 11AM-9PM, F-Sa 11AM-3AM. $7-16. Philly cheesesteaks. No, really: authentic Philly cheesesteaks on Amoroso rolls, right here at a sit-down eatery in Bethesda, and they taste like you got them right out of Geno's window in Philadelphia. If you're not from Philadelphia, you can look like you are in the know by ordering a "nine (or twelve) inch whiz wit." Don't worry, they'll understand that, you won't look silly, and you'll get your cheesesteak with the traditional cheese whiz and grilled onions. In addition to legit Philly cheesesteaks and late hours, this eatery draws customers with a bunch of specialty subs, like the missteak, a monstruous sub stuffed with 1 lb steak, 8 pieces bacon, pepperoni, fries, and three types of cheese (feeds up to four).

  • Maki Maki

    8023 Wisconsin Ave
    M-Sa 11AM-10PM, Su noon-9:30PM. $15-30. Just a bit north of the hotbed of restaurants, this unassuming but pleasant and friendly corner sushi bar is excellent. They specialize in creative sushi (or Maki) dishes like the "Red Dragon" (spicy crunchy tuna inside, topped with avocado, tobiko and spicy sauce) and "Fuji Maki" (eel, tobiko, shrimp tempura, Cscumber, tamago, cream cheese & eel sauce). It's also becoming a neighborhood favorite with the many families in the area.
  • Tastee Diner

    7731 Woodmont Ave
    24 hours daily. $3-11. Looking for the true American diner experience with greasy spoons and waitresses with too much eye shadow? How about cheap eats any time of day or night? Look no further than the tried-and-true Tastee Diner to serve your needs. Indeed, this might be the most dineresque diner in the D.C. area.
