J. Hollinger’s, an upcoming “modern American restaurant” from The Daily Dish and The Dish and Dram owner Jerry Hollinger, is one of Eater D.C.’s 20 Anticipated Fall Restaurant Openings to Track Around D.C.
The restaurant, which will be located at the former home of The Classics at 8606 Colesville Rd. in downtown Silver Spring, will be helmed by Charlie Palmer Steak alum Mike Ellis, according to Eater:
Look for a la carte cuts of meat along with produce sourced from D.C.-area and Pennsylvania farms. The completely renovated space next to the Fillmore is shooting for an “urban rustic” vibe, says Ellis, who helped Palmer win a Michelin star at Dry Creek Kitchen in Healdsburg, California.
The Classics closed in February of 2018. Restaurateur Michael Landrum started the restaurant in the summer of 2006. Landrum founded Ray’s the Steaks in 2002 in Arlington, Va., and quickly earned a reputation for offering high-quality steaks at reasonable prices.
He opened Ray’s the Classics in the summer of 2006 following the same formula, adding dishes such as Southern fried chicken, veal chops, and rack of lamb.
Later, long-time employees Elliott Rattley and Nick Lopata bought the restaurant, taking over on July 1, 2013. They dropped the “Ray’s” name and trimmed the menu to focus on steaks.
J. Hollinger’s joins a growing list of upcoming restaurant openings in Silver Spring’s Central Business District, including Underground Pizza Company, Kusshi Ko, Dog Haus Biergarten, Firepan Korean BBQ, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Miss Toya’s Creole House, Flip’d by IHOP, and the Commas food hall at Ellsworth Place.
