Take a Quick Tour of The Wharf Project in Washington, D.C.
Washington, D.C.’s Wharf Project is the largest construction project in the United States. The Wharf Project is a combination of residences, restaurants, retailers, and businesses that make up a mile long stretch of the Potomac River waterfront. Each of these restaurants, retailers, and businesses embody their own culture, giving visitors an unforgettable experience.
We had the opportunity to work with several of these restaurants, three of which are opening this month. From vibrant Afro-Caribbean food to seafood to a bar and tavern, these restaurants are sure to be a hit.
Top Chef contestant, Kwame Onwuachi, will be the executive chef at Kith / Kin. The restaurant is described as a casual Afro-Caribbean restaurant that is sure to impress. According to the renowned chef, the dishes he creates will draw from Caribbean, Creole, and African roots. Reasonable prices and a casual atmosphere will set the tone for Kith / Kin.
Jamie Leeds, owner and chef at Hank’s Oyster Bar, describes the food she serves as “urban beach food”. This local chain was opened in 2005 in Dupont Circle. Since then, three other locations have been opened, with the location at The Wharf being the fourth location. Since opening the first location, Hank’s Oyster Bar has been praised by Southern Living, Food & Wine, The Washington Post and much more. Hank’s has also been nominated for several awards.
Pearl Street Warehouse is described as “Washington, D.C.’s All-American Live Music Destination”. This American music and food venue come from the owners of Cantina Marina, Nicholas Fontana, Bruce Gates, and Henry Gandy. Their vision for the venue includes a classic diner that will serve American fare from 7 a.m. through the end of the performances. There will also be a drink menu of classic cocktails available before, during and after the show.
