Tips from locals
There are over 150 restaurants offering the greatest cross section of cuisine in any central business district of its size. There is an authentic Irish brew pub, Ethiopian cuisine, Italian fare from deli to dramatic dining room, and signature Elvis burgers served up in funky industrial chic space…
Downtown silver spring includes a lot of Ethiopian, west African, and Asian restaurants as well as a great farmers market on Saturday mornings in the town square in “veterans plaza”, which becomes an ice skating rink in the winter. There’s also a movie theater, many lounges, and a mall.
Shop, enjoy a nice restaurant, or catch a movie. Every Saturday morning farmer market boths are set up in the middle of street.
Many places to eat here. There is also a movie theater. Great shopping also. Located 1.5 miles from my guest house.
