100 Montaditos, an international restaurant chain, will open in the space previously occupied by Green Papaya, Bethesda Magazine reports.
The restaurant launched in Andalusia, Spain, and offers 100 filling combinations for its signature montaditos, which are small sandwiches on crunchy rolls, Bethesda Magazine reports.
The restaurant's website describes the montadito as "a typical element of the Spanish culture and gastronomy."
Inspired by typical Spanish taverns, 100 Montaditos serves up the sandwiches with fillings including Serrano ham and tomatoes, grilled chicken and Iberico cheese, and shrimp with guacamole, according to the report.
When popular Vietnamese restaurant Green Papaya closed in April, Patch asked our readers what they would like to see in the vacant space through our "Visions for Vacancies" series. While most commenters prefered another restaurant, the type of food readers wanted to see added to the Bethesda Row mix varied from barbeque to Greek to French.
100 Montaditos should be open in four to six months, according to the report.
