The restaurant, Miskiri’s third in Silver Spring, had originally planned for an opening this month but ran into construction supply issues during buildout. “[We] have slow[ed] down because of the materials being on backorder. This is true throughout the country,” Miskiri said in a message to the Source.
We initially reported in January that The Breakfast Club would open this spring at the Fenton Silver Spring apartment complex, adjacent to the also-incoming Black Lion Café, a Rockville-based coffee shop and roaster.
The restaurant, named in honor of Miskiri’s late father whom his family called Papa Sherman, will have “breakfast all day with lunch and dinner items” instead of a rumored vegan concept, Miskiri said in a message to the Source in January. “I waved the vegan concept to another time.”
The Breakfast Club will feature an all-day breakfast alongside “Southern American with a twist of Caribbean” cuisine, Miskiri said. Bethesda Beat reported in January that the menu will include omelets, French toast stuffed with cream cheese and strawberries, and pancakes, as well as heavier entrees, such as lamb chops, chicken and waffles, and shrimp and grits.
Miskiri opened The Angry Jerk last summer on Georgia Ave. in downtown Silver Spring. He opened Society Restaurant & Lounge in 2012, which he co-owns with his sister, Samantha Khamis-el-Miskiri, according to Bethesda Magazine.
The Breakfast Club is among a growing list of upcoming restaurant openings in Silver Spring, including Miss Toya’s Creole House, Firepan Korean BBQ, J. Hollinger’s, Kusshi Ko, Bonchon, Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Tacosway Mexican Grill, Valenciana Wine Garden, Flip’d by IHOP, Dunkin/Baskin-Robbins, Black Lion Café, Willie T’s Seafood Shack/Be Right Burger, and the Commas food hall at Ellsworth Place.
