DCist: J. Hollinger’s Happy Hour Is One to Try This Fall

The area’s restaurant scene continues to attract local and national media attention and accolades for its quality and diversity.

DCist has selected the happy hour at J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse as one of ten new Washington, D.C.-area happy hours to try this fall:

Indulge your stomach without indulging your wallet too much at J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse, the latest Silver Spring restaurant from namesake Jerry Hollinger (his other ventures are The Daily Dish and The Dish & Dram). The new seafood establishment offers a happy hour menu with a mix of luxurious foods and drinks, including raw bar offerings like a half lobster, a crab cocktail, or six oysters for $18 each, and non-seafood bites like steak and cheese egg rolls and fries doused in gravy and cheese (both $10). On the discounted drink menu, you’ll find $10 craft cocktails like a rum, coconut and campari concoction called Fools Crush In, $9 classic cocktails, $8 wine glasses and $6 beers.

Jerry Hollinger, owner of The Hollinger Group (The Daily Dish, The Dish and Dram) opened J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse on May 10 at 8606 Colesville Rd. in downtown Silver Spring. Following the departure of Michelin-starred chef Mike Ellis, Cashion’s Eat Place alum John Manolatos took over as executive chef.

Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema recently praised J. Hollinger’s, noting that the restaurant offers “accessible luxury”, while Eater D.C. named the restaurant one of the “15 Hottest New Restaurants Around D.C.”

A lunch menu was introduced last month, including steak frites (praised by David Hagedorn of Bethesda Magazine), chophouse burgers, soft shell crab (also available as sandwiches), pasta arrabbiata, chilled seafood, and gazpacho.
