The area’s restaurant scene continues to attract local and national attention and accolades for its quality and diversity.
Downtown Silver Spring’s year-old chophouse unleashes a decadent, all-you-can-eat brunch buffet starting Sunday, July 23. The $35-per-person Sunday spread includes slow-roasted ribeye with fresh herbs and garlic, hot honey fried chicken, Old Bay peel-and-eat shrimp, cured gravlax, crab-stuffed deviled eggs, brioche French toast with local berries, and frittata with local eggs, cherry tomatoes, basil, candy onions, and fontina. Its Montgomery County restaurateur Jerry Hollinger builds menus with fresh produce pulled from Pennsylvania Mennonite markets each week. For booze, there’s oyster shooters, sangria pitchers, a bloody mary bar, and caffeinated cocktails.
Owned by Jerry Hollinger of The Hollinger Group (The Daily Dish, The Dish and Dram), J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse opened in May of last year in the former home of The Classics at 8606 Colesville Rd. in downtown Silver Spring. Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema praised J. Hollinger’s in his 2022 review, noting that the restaurant “serves up accessible luxury”.
