Silver Spring Wings (Still) Searching for New Home

Readers have been asking us about the status of Silver Spring Wings since we reported last month that they had lost their lease and were searching for a new home. We checked in with owner Evan Walton over the weekend, and we’ve learned he’s still on the hunt for a new space.

“The phone rings off the hook every day here,” Walton said via Instagram direct message. “We have not found a new home yet; I am still working through this tough process. We have a really good product, and I want to make sure we can grow properly.”

Last month, we reported that the chicken wings, tenders, and potato wedges restaurant from the owner of Recess Catering & Events lost their lease and is searching for a new home.

“We are looking for a new location,” Walton said in a November message to the Source. “Our landlord wouldn’t renew our lease and didn’t want us doing takeout anymore.”

Silver Spring Wings opened in May, according to The MoCo Show: “When Evan Walton left his job as the executive chef at the MGM to start Recess Catering & Events, he knew he’d be taking a risk. Three years later, he experienced the same catastrophic results many food and hospitality-based businesses experienced due to the COVID pandemic…and the biggest risk of them all was realized.”

Since the May opening, Silver Spring Wings quickly became a favorite among local chicken wing lovers.

Washington City Paper’s Sabrina Medora sang the wing spot’s praises in the alt-weekly’s August 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.”
