Stella Barre - North Bethesda
Stella Barre is one of my favorite pizza places. It is located in the Pike and Rose shopping center in North Bethesda. Half of this restaurant is Summer House and the other half is Stella Barre. The scene here is very young and hip. The music is dance music from the 90's and some current hits as well.
When the weather is good it has outdoor dining and the barrata is really good. The barrata is essentially a cheese plate with smoked grapes. The grapes are exceptionally good and I remember really not expecting them to be so flavorful and smoky.
In terms of pizza, my favorites are the spinach and kale and also the pepperoni. Both are really good in their own way. The kale pizza tastes like kale chips and is great for those who want a more healthy spin on a classic treat. The pepperoni is slightly spicy but really good.
