Great meal at 8407 Kitchen and Bar

I finally tried 8407 Kitchen and Bar last night and really enjoyed it. The ambiance was great and was just what we were looking for in a neighborhood restaurant close to downtown silver spring. We started with the fried calimari, and two salads the spinach salad with a great feta and the duck proscuitto salad. All excellant. For the mains we had the cuban sandwich, gnocchi, crab cake and the tagliatelle. The only weak spot was the cuban sandwich which lacked flavor but the french fries served with it definitely made up for the sandwich. Prices were decent and service was good. Overall a good experience

  1. I have enjoyed every experience I have had there!

    1. My wife and I had dinner there last night and loved it. Nice room, airy and light. Service was friendly and efficient. We started with the fried green tomatoes stuffed with goat cheese. Good, but not great. A charcuterie plate of the house made pate and the duck prosciutto was quite good. The breads that came with the meal were fantastic.

      My wife had the salmon, perfectly cooked and served with sauteed Swiss chard and mushrooms (and ginger) that she thought was fantastic. I had what had to be one of the best bouillabaisse I've ever had. The bottle of Taval we had with dinner went very well. The wine list is not large, but well represented and for MoCo, fairly well priced. We will definitely be adding this restaurant to our rotation.

      1. Yes, we'd tried 8407 a few times with limited luck but just had a fantastic meal there and it seems like they've finally really hit their stride.
