If you’re feeling landlocked in the city, going to Cantina Marina is a nice way to pretend you’re at the beach. It isn’t the best seafood in town, but the location on the Anacostia river and reasonable prices make up for it. Try it for a casual group dinner, or a margarita and some fish tacos before a Nats game. It’s about a 20-minute walk from the stadium, but they have a free shuttle that leaves 45 minutes before the game starts.
Cantina Marina is permanently closed.
