More Union Market News – Seafood Market and Cafe, District Fishwife, and new “chef driven” Restaurant Coming Soon

1309 5th Street, NE

Earlier in the week we learned that RIS would be opening a stall in mid-November and it:

“will feature a larder of staples for any chef or home cook: stocks, sauces, soups, prepared foods and baked goods, along with daily offerings of “Ris Bowls” – hot stews, creative salads and nutritious children’s foods.”

The Washington Post also reports that and a new seafood market and cafe called the District Fishwife will be opening in November:

“the District Fishwife, a 440-square-foot seafood market and cafe that will deal in sustainable fish. Lewis is expected to sell locally sourced products — rockfish, blue crabs, oysters — while working with distributors and wholesalers to find sustainably caught tuna, wild salmon and sustainably farmed barramundi. She also wants to push small, oily fish.”

And on top of that a liquor license application was recently posted for a new restaurant:

“A chef driven,, farm to table, full service restaurant serving local, fresh and seasonal inspired food. Total Occupancy Load #199, number of Seats #120, Summer Garden seating- joint use in common area. Including Entertainment Endorsement, Live and Recorded music and jazz.”
