Restaurateur Mark Bucher (founder of BGR and Medium Rare) doesn’t see Community as a diner, but as a restaurant and lounge where the people of Bethesda can come together. Bucher is a resident of the neighborhood that noticed a need for this sort of gathering place. The resulting space is what he describes as The Brady Bunch meets Frank Lloyd Wright. It’s reminiscent of classic diners in Palm Springs and Miami, and the menu is all about American comfort food. Given Bucher’s love for beef, it’s no surprise that burgers are a top seller here—including “parody” offerings like the Trumpster, with American cheese, Russian dressing and a very small pickle. Expect plenty of other diner fare, like breakfast all day, fried chicken and stacked sandwiches. The drinks menu focuses on traditional cocktails from the ‘40s and ‘50s, plus alcoholic slurpees (called Slurpdees) and adult milkshakes.
