Westfield Montgomery, commonly known as Montgomery Mall, in Bethesda, Maryland has more than 190 stores offering everything from women and men’s fashion, children’s fashion and toys, jewelry, housewares, accessories, electronics, music, and more. The department stores include Macy’s, Nordstroms, Macy's Home Store and Sears.

Westfield Montgomery Renovations

Montgomery Mall is undergoing an $89 million revitalization project which will boast a complete transformation of the 1.2 million square foot shopping center.  The upgrades include the addition of a sophisticated new dining terrace, full service restaurants and the first East Coast location of ArcLight Cinemas -- a state-of-the-art 16-screen, 2,400 seat luxury theatre experience. The theatre complex will be housed adjacent to the new dining terrace, with the mall’s current three-screen theatre converted to retail shops.  The Dining Terrace will open this summer and the rest of the renovations are expected to be completed in the fall of 2014.

New Dining Experiences

Dining Terrace - The food court has been transformed into a ‘dining terrace’ with a clean and modern design using natural building materials to create a casual but elegant bistro-style environment. The redesigned space features stylish furnishings and upgraded amenities, including the addition of family lounges.

Five new restaurants will be opening soon:

CRAVE – The restaurant will feature an eclectic American menu and a full sushi bar in a chic yet causal atmosphere.

MET Bethesda – The restaurant will offer classics such as the duo of tuna and salmon tartare, rigatoni Bolognese and an array of chopped salads. The restaurant will also boast a wood burning grill and a 40-seat bar where guests can enjoy on-tap martinis.

Blaze Pizza - The California-based pizzeria favorite is known for its exceptional quality and “crazy fast” food. The restaurant serves fresh, made-from-scratch pizzas with healthful, artisanal ingredients that are made to order in less than three minutes.

Cava Grill – The local restaurant brings the flavors of Cava Mezze full-service restaurants to budget, time, and health-conscience consumers. The menu features Build Your Own meals with salads, rice bowls, or house-baked pitas, and dinner plates from a stone-fired oven. 

Chipotle  Mexican Grill – The company operates more than 1,600 restaurants worldwide offering a menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads, made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in a distinctive atmosphere.

ArcLight Cinemas

The new 16-screen movie theater will earn the distinction as the only cinema on the East Coast to operate with no commercials, all-reserved seating and no late seating after a movie has begun. Programming will include Hollywood blockbusters, art house fare, film exhibits and cult classics. Signature amenities include "black box" auditoriums, extra-wide seats with double armrests, stadium seating, digital projection and full service concession areas. Each theatre is designed with a designated auditorium and adjacent lounge where movie-goers (ages 21 and up) may enjoy wine, beer and cocktails during select screenings.
