Designed by Grizform Design Architects, this seafood-focused gem spans 3,495 square feet just steps away from Nationals Park on the Capital
Riverfront near the Anacostia River harbor.
Modeled after a New England boathouse and a Chesapeake Bay-style oyster bar, the clean and airy restaurant — outfitted in minty greens mixed with polished metal accents and rope — features vignettes for lounge seating, traditional dining and even communal tables. A sleek horseshoe-shaped black bar is adorned with brass accents, custom light fixtures and an elaborate oyster display presenting the East Coast’s best.
Cedar shingling on the private dining room walls and ceiling offsets the salvaged dory that hangs from the ceiling and ornately trimmed French doors, which lead to the private dining patio for a full indoor/outdoor dining and cocktail experience. Outside, cocktail tables offer flexible seating for game days, along with sheet metal accents reminiscent of seafood shanties along the coast of Maine.
