This New England-style seafood spot is right is right along the Anacostia River in Navy Yard. It takes all the good from Massachusetts (clam chowder, lobster rolls, and a raw bar), and leaves the bad (Patriots fans). Stop by for a sit down meal in the upscale-but-not-too fancy dining room - a solid choice for that second or third date - or grab one of their massive seafood towers (appropriately dubbed “The Kraken”) and some Northeastern brews at their outdoor bar.
