These restaurant is located right next to the Silver Spring metro very convenient. As you walk in there is a bar downstairs with people partaking of happy hour, and upstairs is another eatery area with another bar. I was delighted to see that they had homemade bitters as part of the creativity and local dishes. We arrived for dinner and... More

Our last two visits to 8407 kitchen bar have been disappointing. Table density seems to have increased and noise level is excessive. On the most recent visit, last week, the server was good but failed to deal well with food one guest found to differ from the menu description. He simply said "Chef said it's OK" and went on.

Been here twice both times for outings with girlfriends. Drinks are great, a tad pricey but well made. Grilled cheese on the menu is to die for!!! Hit this place up in the cold weather for some food & spirits to warm your soul!!

A co-worker recommended this place for happy hour. There were great deals on appetizers and the food was delicious. We tried several dishes ( deviled eggs, nachos, mussels, calamari, duck fat fries. The mussels were tender, the deviled eggs were made with bacon and pickles for a sweet and sour taste, the nachos were generous with chicken and cheese. The... More

We have eaten here several times. Great cocktails and an ever changing menu. Duck fat fries are not to be missed. Conveniently located at the Silver Spring metro

We wanted to treat our respective Mothers to a great brunch. instead, we experienced an expensive outing highlighted by poor food and service. The fixed price brunch ($35 pp) included three courses and a drink. The first course, a beet, feta cheese and greens salad was very light on the cheese (a few small cubes) and a tiny amount of...

Met friends there as we have done several times. Like the setting and the "vibe" of the restaurant. But the menu has changed and probably the chef because the food has taken a noticeable turn to the worse. Proof in point: 3 of the 4 of us got sick. Also, the service was just frustrating. Nice server but clearly he... More

Good place for couples or a group - great bar with casual seating. Food is simple but they do some creative entrees. Duck fat fries are to die for! Unfortunately parking is tricky but if you know how the garages work you can get there easily--

Last minute dinner with younger daughter and her boyfriend took us to this wonderful restaurant. Creative chef offers an eclectic menu. We went grazing, working through the small plates. Beef tartare, duck spring rolls, and crispy pork belly were three favorites, but all were delightful. They offer a good wine list despite the County restricted selections. Someone went to a... More
