Helen's on The Pike, Chef Helen Wasserman in the Former Addie's Space on Rockville Pike near White Flint - Closed

Recommended Posts

This morning Tom Sietsema announced that Helen Wasserman will be opening Crave by Helen in the former Addie's on the Rockville Pike. From the article:


In the mid-80s, Wasserman ran the well-regarded Helen's on 18th St. NW. In a review of the restaurant, former Washington Post critic Phyllis C. Richman wrote, "Here's new American cuisine to the utmost with an Oriental accent and trendy touches from around the world.


Helen is my sister.  I could not be more proud!

Anyone else been there?

Yes - for lunch.  Had a veggie sandwich with salad and fruit for desert.  Was good, but the larger group said some of their things were less than exciting.  Looking through the menu, would have to agree that it could use a little more pizazz.   You're competing with the memory of Addie's, so try to offer something(s) to match that Oyster Po Boy or Pulled Pork sandwich.  Can be simpler than dinner, but more than basic sandwiches.
