We reported in August that owner Evan Walton had hoped to reopen Silver Spring Wings by September. “We signed a lease in March,” Walton said to the Source last June. “With delays with equipment and other things, it has set us back a little.”

The restaurant, located near the Wheaton Streetery, will share space with sister brand District Teriyaki, according to The MoCo Show.

Silver Spring Wings originally opened in May of 2020 after the pandemic cratered Walton’s catering business, Recess Catering & Events. The restaurant quickly became popular, with Washington City Paper’s Sabrina Medora singing the wing spot’s praises in her articleThese Are the Neighborhood Bars and Restaurants We’ve Relied on During the Pandemic: “Last time we got Silver Spring Wings, my husband and I feasted on leftovers for two days with unwavering enthusiasm. We’ve since recommended these wings to everyone we know. Next time you’re worrying about what to cook, pay Walton a visit in Silver Spring. He also does limited deliveries in the area. Don’t skip the coleslaw.”

Walton’s landlord terminated the restaurant’s lease in October of 2020, seemingly because of their popularity. “Our landlord wouldn’t renew our lease and didn’t want us doing takeout anymore,” Walton said to the Source in November of that year.

“A special thank you to all of our customers that have supported us from day one,” Walton said on Instagram. “We appreciate you and all the phone calls, voicemails, and emails. We are back to stay.”
