J. Hollinger’s has entered the fit-and-finish stage of buildout, as the restaurant nears its anticipated opening in downtown Silver Spring.
Pandemic-delayed construction has been underway to convert the space formerly occupied by The Classics at 8606 Colesville Rd. in downtown Silver Spring, but they are looking to wrap up construction and be open within the next two weeks, an on-site worker said last week to the Source. Signage and awning have been installed, and window treatments were installed last week.
In addition to offering steaks, seafood, craft cocktails, and a raw bar, the “full-service chophouse” will feature a live jazz brunch and prime rib night on Sundays, according to Eater. Charlie Palmer Steak alum Mike Ellis, who earned a Michelin star as chef de cuisine at Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen in Healdsburg, Calif., will be at the lead.
J. Hollinger’s is among a growing list of upcoming restaurant openings in Silver Spring, including Firepan Korean BBQ, The Breakfast Club, Miss Toya’s Creole House, 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.
