"Sotto Sopra is consistently excellent. The food, the decor, the service, all add up to dining at its best, at affordable prices. Certainly, there are more elegant and fussier establishments with prices to boot but Sotto Sopra stands out as giving excellent value to its clientele."

Jackie's is an independent American restaurant in downtown Silver Spring serving farm-to-table seasonal cuisine. Located in a converted warehouse, it offers a dramatic and award-winning interior design, food with a distinctively modern flair, and a critically recognized wine selection. Next door is Sidebar, considered one of the top craft cocktail bars in the region.

"Jackie's, a treasured addition to Silver Spring, has turned chinsy. The setting, the service, the quality of the food served were all fine. My fish stew was delicious...what there was of it. I found my portion to be very skimpy. At a price of $29, I expected to have a plateful of seafood. Instead, I got a meager amount, not enough to satisfy me. I am not a large person, actually kind of small.
My husband's char was tasty and tiny. Really. We won't be returning to Jackie's.

Blue Duck Tavern, a contemporary neighborhood restaurant, invites its guests to gather and celebrate in good taste with a menu focusing on the freshest ingredients available from local purveyors and artisans. The menu notes every farm where the main ingredient for the dish was raised before its journey to the table. Dishes are genuine, time-honored and traditional -- slow roasting in wood embers, braising, preserving and smoking techniques bring the true flavors of America's great, simple and wholesome foods to the Blue Duck Tavern. <br /><br />The restaurant has an elegant residential feel through the open staff pantry and kitchen, wood-burning oven and the showpiece Molteni range.<br /><br />*Please note that for diners bringing in wine, a $35 corkage fee (per 750 ml bottle of wine), with a limit of two bottles, will be charged.

"Food at Blue Duck Tavern is excellent; that is, however much one gets. Our portions for entrees were nicely prepared but arrived at the table with nothing else on the plate. Two crab cakes sat in a bath of cream sauce...no small potatoes, peas, asparagus. Nothing but the crabs, which made me crabby.
Our server tried to get us to order vegetables, but that would have jacked up prices to a degree we weren't willing to go. I understand restaurants figure their profit margins very closely, but I cannot fathom not putting a small amount of additional food on a barren plate.
Oh, that server could barely speak English, which didn't help matters.
