Restaurant industry veterans Jennifer Meltzer and Chef Edward Reavis are pleased to announce the upcoming opening of All Set Restaurant & Bar, a 4,730-square-foot restaurant at 8630 Fenton Street in downtown Silver Spring in early spring 2015.
All Set, a space designed by Streetsense and rooted in community, food and quality, is destined to change the social dining scene and become a staple in Silver Spring, the hometown of co-owner Jennifer Meltzer.
“After living in the city, I developed a greater appreciation for the sense of community, tradition and togetherness which Silver Spring offers,” said Meltzer. “I am extremely excited to bring Silver Spring a new gathering place to relax and enjoy genuine, personalized hospitality coupled with good food and drink.”
All Set Restaurant & Bar will put a contemporary twist on seasonally inspired dishes which reflect Chef-Owner Edward Reavis’ passion for fresh ingredients, nutritious foods and unforgettable flavors.
“The menu will feature American cuisine inspired by the traditions of coastal New England. Moderately priced, the menu consists of diverse offerings. The dishes available will be comforting and current, all while supporting local farmers and suppliers,” said Chef Edward Reavis.
All Set will be open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests will also be able to enjoy a relaxing brunch on weekends. The kitchen will serve a 125-seat dining room, 15-seat bar featuring a raw seafood display and a 24-seat outdoor patio. A private dining room is also available to accommodate private events.
All Set Restaurant & Bar will be conveniently located in the Montgomery Center which contains a three level parking garage and is also walking distance from the Silver Spring Metro Station, The Fillmore and two blocks from Discovery Worldwide and United Therapeutics Headquarters.
All Set will bring the vision and talent of Chef Edward Reavis to Silver Spring’s dining scene. With a focus on fresh ingredients, locally-grown produce, signature cocktails, excellent preparation, and a chic ambiance, Silver Spring will now have the perfect answer to the question, “Where should we go to eat?”
The menu will feature American cuisine inspired by the traditions of New England and will change seasonally to provide the freshest and highest quality ingredients.
