As has been detailed here previously, craft cocktails and haute bar food are the name of the game at Quench–opening May 22 in a strip mall just off Rockville’s Traville Gateway Drive. Executive chef Richard Gunter has
created a menu of locally sourced and seasonally changing items
including corn beignets, shrimp ceviche, and fresh salads. The fare complements a long list
of cocktails both classic and newfangled–“chief cocktail officer” Steve Oshana (Matt Allred is head bartender) is responsible for monikers like Tequila Mockingbird and the Kentucky Irby.

The
suburban lounge has ambitious plans to expand–though no one’s talking
specifics, future locations are “in the hopper,” according to Oshana.

For now, however, the Quench team is focused on opening day.
