An American-Bistro Restaurant Experience in Bethesda
Persimmon is a beloved bistro located off the beaten path from Bethesda's bustling downtown. Chef and Owner, Damian Salvatore, grew up in Bethesda and worked in local restaurants his entire life, all-the-while crafting his passion for creating genuinely good food. In 1998, Damian and his wife Stephanie opened their very first restaurant: Persimmon. It wasn't long before Persimmon's menu and charm grew to be well-loved by loyal guests, and became a Washington-area favorite. Persimmon is a hidden gem among the many restaurant choices in Bethesda offering incredible starters, seasonal salads and signature entrees. Let our family of professionals provide an unforgettable dining experience for your family and friends.
