Fodor's Review

The watchword is simplicity at this chic take on the shellfish shacks of New England. A half-dozen oyster varieties are available daily on the half shell, both from the West Coast and local Virginia waters, alongside another handful of daily fish specials, from bouillabaisse to grilled tuna, and a "meat-and-two" daily special for those who prefer turf to surf. Don't be shy about asking for seconds on the complimentary baking chocolate presented along with your check—the kitchen doesn't serve sweets, but it doesn't need to. There's another location in Capitol Hill, with a quirky bar that turns out classic ales and '90s one-hit-wonder-inspired Vanilla Ice cocktails, plus a third outpost in Old Town Alexandria.
