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).

"8407 is continually my favorite restaurant in SS. Weird location but the decor, food, and service MORE than make up for that. I had the chicken caesar salad, which was surprisingly delicious. The service on this last visit was exceptional and really made it a pleasant experience. Great job as always."

"I hosted a large party (12) and everyone was very happy with their selections. All our food was delicious. Our server was very responsive and friendly. The wine list has several overpriced options but if you move up the price list the choices get much better and are less overpriced. All in, a great place to go."

"I love that you can get proper portioned food that is very delicious. Service is always very good and they have a great wine list. This is without a doubt my favorite "chain" restaurant."

"Copper Canyon is good but not a place that will thrill. I had the tuna, which was rare like I requested but still dry. My wife had the rattlesnake pasta, which is delicious but swimming in butter. Service was slow and our wine and beer took a long time to be delivered. However, on a nice day, go and sit outside."

The stunning restaurant, which is first of its kind in Philadelphia, will transport guests to the Greek Islands with an atmosphere reminiscent of an inviting Mediterranean home & a menu of authentic specialties, simply prepared, that represent the best of Greek cuisine. The restaurant specializes in whole grilled fish which are flown in from the Greek Islands, the shores of Morocco, Tunisia, & Portugal. Guests are able to choose from Estia’s expansive display & watch chefs cook their fish to perfection over a charcoal grill in the sparkling open kitchen.

"I had the Arni Paidakia and it was very good. I started with the romaine salata, and it was ok. I'd choose something else next time. Our server was very friendly and engaging. Overall, everyone was very happy with their choices and I would visit again."

Butcher & Singer, in the amazing historic location at 1500 Walnut, is an intimate and sophisticated dining experience in a relaxed clubhouse setting. We brought back the true classics from perfect Manhattans and Sidecars to dry aged, hand cut steaks and chops, and freshly caught fish. Timeless and fun for all in the continued age of the American chophouse. <br />

"Delicious delmonico. And the stuffed hash browns are the best potatoes I have ever had! The wine list is fantastic and our server was friendly and attentive. The butcher salad was OK, but everything else was great."

"I've been to 8407 many times, but this was the 1st business lunch I've enjoyed there. I had the mahi mahi tacos, which were great. My guest had the carbonara, which he said was very well prepared. Service was good as always. I will be back."

"Overall it was good. I had the shrimp & grits, which were good but not great. My wife had a burger, which she said was very good. The cheddar tater tots were disappointing. But the wine list is very good, so go for a burger and great glasses of wine."

Lebanese Taverna creates an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Each restaurant is a "home away from home," even though the food and ambiance are from across the globe. Whether you are visiting for the first time, the twentieth, or have been coming to a Lebanese Taverna for over 29 years, you will feel welcomed and like a member of the family. The atmosphere is bustling and each of the restaurants has its own design and slightly different flavors. That is because the food is made fresh.

"I say this every time, but it is true, so Leb Tav is on of my favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious and the service is friendly and attentive. On this trip I ordered the Ouzi, which is SO GOOD!"
