Downtown Silver Spring gets a taste of New England later this month when All Set Restaurant & Bar opens its doors on April 14. The 140-seat eatery, named after the popular saying, will dish up lobster rolls, raw bar oysters, Sunday fried chicken dinners, and other specialties from up north.

Jennifer Meltzer and chef Edward Reavis are behind the nautically-chic eatery; she’s worked in area restaurants like BLT Steak and Found Farmers, he comes most recently from a sous chef position at Nantucket’s Cru Oyster Bar. The lunch and dinner menus include crowd-pleasers like hushpuppies, lobster cobbs, Old Bay buttered crab cakes, and braised short ribs, alongside creations such as a fried oyster burger. Sunday dinners will feature two family-style meals ($30 to $35 per person): a New England boil with shellfish, sausage, and corn on the cob, or fried chicken and sausage gravy.

Once the warm weather settles guests can gather on a 24-seat patio, and settle in with a dark n’ stormy or “dessert drink.” We could be all set with a Nutella-spiked mudslide.

All Set Restaurant & Bar. 8630 Fenton St., Silver Spring; 301-495-8800.
