The Face of
The American Dream
Raynold Mendizabal | Urban Butcher
Downtown Silver Spring, one of the nation’s most
culturally diverse cities, is where Cuban-born
restauranteur Raynold Mendizabal calls home.
The chef and owner of Urban Butcher, a vibrant
neighborhood steakhouse, approaches life just as
he does in the kitchen: stick to the basics, be bold,
work hard and never stop creating.
So far, it’s proven a formula for success, placing
him and his restaurant at the leading edge of this
dynamic community. A lively atmosphere, upbeat
sidewalk bar and meat-centric menu have deemed
Urban Butcher a hot spot in Silver Spring and a
cornerstone of its recent flourishing.
And, with promises of a fresh, new concept
later this year, Chef Mendizabal keeps moving
forward in true American form, except he doesn’t
just have dreams… he has plans. Big ones.
