The Arsenal is the 200-seat restaurant & bar housed within the brewery, Bluejacket. The menu, crafted by Executive Chef Kyle Bailey of Birch & Barley and ChurchKey and Chef de Cuisine Dan Hahndorf, updates, refines and extends the classic fare of beer halls and public houses by featuring the best locally sourced products available and highlighting house-made specialties such as charcuterie, fresh pastas, alongside whole-roasted meats, hearty grains and seasonal vegetables. A menu of gourmet sandwiches, house-ground burgers and bar snacks is the perfect accompaniment to a signature Bluejacket brew. <br /><br />Rounding out the savory offerings at lunch and dinner is Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIsaac’s robust bread program, which includes breads made with spent grain from the brewery. Chef MacIsaac’s renowned desserts also grace the menu with a number of seasonal pies served with freshly spun ice creams.

"This place was mentioned by a friend. We went there before a Nationals game. Normally, I love eating at the stadium, but the menu was so tempting, that I ended up ordering here. We had the stuffed chicken, which was EXCELLENT. Great flavors. And the cocktails were delicious also."

8407 kitchen bar in downtown Silver Spring is a welcoming oasis of comfort and casual sophistication. From the sleek and stylish bar/lounge on the ground floor to the warm and rustic charm of the light-filled second floor dining room. 8407 offers something to please all moods and tastes.<br /><br />Executive Chef Justin Bittner's artisanal American menu features house made charcuterie, fresh, seasonal, locally sourced produce, meat and game as well as sustainable seafood. Pastry chef Rita Garruba's desserts end the meal on the perfect grace note. The dining experience is welcoming with knowledgeable service in a warm and approachable atmosphere. <br /><br />Not to be missed: Sunday Brunch, and Wine Lover's Mondays (exclusive 1/2 priced wine bottle selections for diners).

"I was a bit disappointed this time around. The lamb special was not what I anticipated. Overly cheesy, shredded lamb, and soupy risotto. Not the usual quality that I expect."

"My friend and I went here for Sunday brunch. Good location and ambiance, but we were not impressed with the food. The deviled eggs were excellent. But my shrimp and grits dish was soggy, swimming really, in an unusual lemon broth - was not too tasty. My friend had the beef/sausage dish. It was fine, but not remarkable in any way. And I was very much looking forward to the buttermilk chess pie, but they were out for today, so I did not get the one thing I specifically went there for."

Our mission is to bring you a seasonal menu, rooted in American tradition that showcases the Mid-Atlantic's ingredients. Our produce is organic or sustainable whenever possible; our meats are naturally-raised; our seafood wild or sustainable. We support local artisanal cheese makers, growers, ranchers, fisherman, and encourage you to do the same by buying local at our farmer's market or grocery.

"My friend and I spent approximately $50 on the Easter jazz brunch buffet with bottomless mimosas. The bottomless mimosas kept coming, but the food was hard to find. When we first went to the buffet, there was a long line, but not because there were a lot of people there, but because people were waiting for all of the empty trays to be refilled. Almost everything on the buffet had run out and no one had come to replace it. It took quite a while."
