Thanks to Andy for sending.

From a press release:

“The Sea Catch Restaurant & Raw Bar announces the closing of their doors as of January 29, 2017. This comes after being in business for over 30 years and serving up some of the finest seafood and having the best raw oyster bar in the area.

There will be something new in the future. Plans of what that entails have not been released at this time. The restaurant was a favorite of locals and tourists alike, specializing in an extensive raw bar, seasonal menus, and offering a variety of locally sourced seafood. Sea Catch Restaurant & Raw Bar, was located at 1054 31st St. NW in Washington, D.C.”

  • Wow, first DC Coast, now Sea Catch? Double bummer!

  • I loved sitting at the outside tables by the canal.

  • Georgetown is a tough market and 30 years is a long time t be relevant and prosperous.

  • Georgetown kills businesses because there is no where to park and no convenient way of getting there on public transportation. Its sidewalks are ridiculously narrow, making it unpleasant for anyone but a tourist to walk around, and it offers nothing you’d want or couldn’t find in a local mall. Ban parking on the street, take away a lane on both sides of M and Wisconsin to widen the sidewalks, and build a couple of easily accessible parking garages (not the hard-to-find, hard-to-nagivate ones like that under Georgetown Park), and the shopping district would explode.

    Georgetown @ M and Wisconsin needs a major rework by people with vision, something akin to what was done in Bethesda, is planned for Rosslyn, or happened to the Baltimore Harbor. As it stands and has been for the last three decades, it is simply unworkable, and given its potential, it deserves a proper redevelopment.
