Sietsema: J. Hollinger’s “Serves Up Accessible Luxury”

The quality and diversity of the area’s restaurant scene continue to earn attention and accolades from national food media.

In his review published today, Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema praised downtown Silver Spring newcomer J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse, noting that the restaurant “serves up accessible luxury”:

There’s a lot of talk in the industry about being approachable. J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse not only walks the talk, it lets some fortunate customers adjust their own ambiance. From now on, when people ask “Where’s the beef?” or “How about fish?” I’ll point them to Silver Spring and a restaurant that can teach Washington some new tricks.

Owned by Jerry Hollinger of The Hollinger Group (The Daily Dish, The Dish and Dram) and led by Michelin-starred chef Mike Ellis, J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse opened on May 10 in the former home of The Classics at 8606 Colesville Rd. in downtown Silver Spring.
