Located just down the road from the Metro station, Silver Spring’s Scion is well known to local commuters. Owned by a local family with decades in the restaurant business, Scion is known for its laid-back atmosphere, classic American comfort food, and appealing happy hour specials.
If you’ve never visited before, stop by during happy hour to get a taste of what makes this place so popular. Every weekday from 5 to 7 p.m., you can get draft beers for half price, $4 bao buns, and a sampler platter of sliders for $9. If you enjoy that, come by on the weekend for brunch, too. The menu includes all of the kitchen’s classic salads and sandwiches as well as an array of popular breakfast dishes — some favorites include the crawfish hash, huevos rancheros, and the cinnamon-banana French toast. If those meals don’t strike your fancy, then you can build your own omelet or scramble, using your choice of protein, cheese, and up to three veggies.Read More
