Urban Butcher - Silver Spring
This casual neighborhood eatery is all about the meat (sweats). Urban Butcher boasts a variety of steak, chops and multiple carnivore-obsessed offerings, but the star of the menu is The Meat Mountain. That consists of a sizzling display for two of a 60 plus-day, dry-aged rib-eye, Heritage Woodland pork chop, Meadow View Farm ground lamb grillers, Urban Butcher chicken sausages, potato purée and charred broccolini.Read More
Those looking for something more modest may explore the menu from top to bottom. Start with cured meats like lamb bacon or coppa, then go for creative, share-able dishes such as steak tartare with black truffle or the foie gras torchon.
There are three salads from which to choose, plus truffle mac and cheese and Brussels sprouts for those who don't eat meat, but face it, this place hardly caters to the vegan or vegetarian. Other notable meaty offerings include the 30-day, salt-packed tenderloin, grilled lamb chops and butcher's beef or lamb burger.
Those who arrive early may enjoy the "never ending restaurant week" deal of three courses for $35 or $25 lavender margarita
pitchers during happy hour. There’s a to-go butcher counter near the front door and a casual dining room toward the back.
