New restaurant Urban Butcher opens in Silver Spring -- Gazette.Net


Urban Butcher opens Thursday in Silver Spring, offering a selection that features in-house cured and aged cuts of meat, as well as seafood, poultry, pig and game.

It’s at 8226 Georgia Ave., two blocks south of the Silver Spring Metro station.

Reflecting the chefs’ passion for whole animal butchery, many of the proteins on the menu will come from local and sustainable sources, according to a news release.

Urban Butcher’s wine list of about 100 labels features avant-garde small producers from the Old World.

Also, it will include newer-style wines from around the U.S. The cocktail menu features classic cocktails, plus an eclectic whiskey and malts selection.

The restaurant will initially offer only dinner and happy hour, but has plans to open for brunch, lunch and coffee shop throughout the day in early 2014.
