Rockville-Based Silver Diner to Open First DC Location in October With New Concept Included

by MCS Staff

Rockville-based Silver Diner, which opened its first restaurant in Montgomery County back in 1989, will open its first DC location at 1250 Half Street, SE (Ball Park/Navy Yard) on October 5th. The unique two-story location will have two two restaurants– Silver Diner downstairs and Silver Social, a 21+ terrace lounge, upstairs.

This will be the 18th restaurant for Silver Diner, which has locations in Maryland and Virginia, and the first to offer the Silver Social concept (previously referred to as Bar Silver). The 8,000-square-foot location will have seating for approximately 300 people and an outdoor terrace overlooking Nats Park.

Silver Diner co-founder/CEO Robert Giaimo and partner/executive chef Ype Von Hengst opened the first Silver Diner in Rockville in 1989. The duo visited over 500 diners across the country to prepare for the opening of Silver Diner, which was located in Mid-Pike Plaza, where Pike & Rose stands today. The Rockville location later moved to Federal Plaza, in the location that was previously home to Bennigan’s, where it remains today.
