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 />8407'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).

"Food was good but nothing exceptional. What one expects from a chain. I would go back; it was fine."

Taste Gastropub provides high quality, freshly prepared food at reasonable prices, maintaining purveyors of local or organic produce, sustainable seafood, and humanely raised meat and poultry as often as possible.<br />Taste Gastropub also goes further to provide a unique selection of beer, wine, and cocktails to enjoy alongside the food. <br />We carries a vast selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle. Boutique wineries are sought out, to give the guests a chance to indulge in something they may have never tried before. <br />On the cocktail side, Taste Gastropub has many unique offerings as well. Recipes developed by Taste’s own grace the bartop throughout the evening to create delicious cocktails in order to help elevate your experience.<br /><br />

The newest Chef Geoff's restaurant is the go-to destination on the Pike. Located across from Montrose Crossing, Chef Geoff's Rockville is the perfect spot for a business lunch or family dinner in a friendly and energetic atmosphere. Only minutes from the Strathmore, we're the perfect location for pre-theater dining. A three course Sunset Special is offered daily from 4:30-6 pm for $19.95. Need a break from work? There is no better place than our newly renovated bar for all-day happy hour Monday and Tuesday. Or join us for our ever-growing Bacon Bar on Wednesday and Thursday where we truly believe bacon goes great with everything. Have a case of the Mondays? We have the solution with ½ price bottles of wine every Monday. We are excited to finally be a part of your neighborhood and hope that you will come join us soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"This small French café is a gem. Lovely, really takes you to Paris even down to the white tablecloths. My only disappointment was we went to brunch and they ran out of their wonderful croissants."

"Been to this restaurant several times but food and service not as good as previous visits. Kitchen seemed overwhelmed and service slow. They have changed the menu somewhat moving more toward pub food. What we had was good but wait long and could have been hotter when served. Really liked this place before but this visit was a bit disappointing."
