Go for the pastrami, not the service! Urban Butcher located in Silver Spring, MD has the best pastrami I have ever had. Thick-cut and seasoned perfectly with a wonderful buttery texture. The restaurant/butchery is well-designed and serves high-quality food. I usually get the burger and fries, which my friend referred to as ‘divine’… not sure if I would go that far, but it’s really good. But, back to that amazing pastrami! It is so good, I still go despite the snotty service, (never had bad service from the butchers, just A LOT of wait staff). Too bad really… if they put their amazing butcher and his staff in the front of the house, guests would leave charmed.
After my last visit I left with 4 pounds of pastrami. The food is great, the butchery is the best. I highly recommend. If you expect to be treated with respect, just pick up some cured meats or steaks and eat at home.
