The new Georgetown at the Navy Yard?! The Salt Line is turning this area into DC's new waterfront hot spot
Is it even possible to transform the waterfront near the Nationals Stadium into a Georgetown-like area? Serving New England classics and Chesapeake Bay dishes, this oyster bar is blazing the trail— or should I say the river—in an area that is likely to take off in the next 5 years.
Located on Potomac Avenue in Southeast D.C., the nautical-themed restaurant serving craft beers and cocktails such as the Saltier Dog will transport you beyond land straight to the water through their exquisite menu.
The grilled monkfish with the creamy, herbal, mildly spicy sauce typically made with a mix of almonds, green peppers and poblanos was spectacular. The braised golden tilefish (a delicate, low in fat fish with a flavor similar to lobster) with littleneck clams, squash and fava beans was not too far behind.
Because I am normally adverse to salt, oysters don't quite do it for me. Yet, this daredevil restaurant reviewer HAD to try the oysters, after all it is called The Salt Line- Oyster + Ale. And they... were... surprisingly good. Prominently displayed atop their raw bar, you can read more about their oyster selection, which come from different parts of the country.
P.S. Get in and dine at The Salt Line!
