BETHESDA, MD — DIG, a fast-casual restaurant, held a grand opening ceremony on Saturday for its newest location in Bethesda. The grand opening celebration marked the brand’s first restaurant in Maryland.

To kick off the celebration, a “knife-cutting” ceremony was held, and remarks were given by DIG COO Scott Nicholson and Restaurant Association of Maryland President and CEO Marshall Weston.

“At DIG, we firmly believe cooking is a way of bringing people together and building tight-knit communities,” DIG COO Scott Nicholson said. “We’re excited to officially open our doors in Maryland and share our menu with our neighbors in the Bethesda area.”

DIG said it prides itself on serving chef-prepared seasonal comfort food, offering a variety of scratch-made dishes including plates, salads, and desserts prepared daily by a chef and culinary team. The menu is rotated regularly to showcase the freshest vegetables of the season.

Members of the community were invited to come out to be a part of the celebration. The first 100 customers to visit the Bethesda location received free tote bags with Spindrift seltzers and a chance to win a three-month membership to Equinox Bethesda Fitness Club and services from Bella Bethesda Salon.

In addition, DIG partnered with Manna Food Center, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in Montgomery County, to donate 100 percent of opening day walk-in sales to their mission.

“Manna is excited to partner with DIG to welcome them to Montgomery County,” Manna Food Center’s Director of Development and Communications Mardia Dennis said. “We share similar values understanding that food builds community, and we look forward to further collaboration as we share good food.”

DIG also held a “See What’s Cooking” day on Friday to give the community a chance to preview the restaurant at no charge. Guests were encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate to Manna Food Center.

DIG is located at 4733 Elm St. in Bethesda and will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
