From Wegmans:

“Our Japanese Seafood and Sushi Festival is returning for the first time since 2019, this time at our Wisconsin Avenue store in Washington D.C. located at the City Ridge complex in Tenleytown.

Wegmans has a long-standing relationship with Japan’s top fishmonger and retailer, Uoriki. Working closely with these partners in Tokyo, we have continued to expand our world-class sushi offerings and we have gained access to the famous Toyosu Fish Market (formerly Tsukiji.)

The Japanese Seafood and Sushi Festival will feature fresh seafood brought in directly from the Toyosu Market. Expert fishmongers from Japan will be flying in to work alongside us, honing seafood knife skills and preparing fish in advance of the festival.

I could see a gastropub doing pretty well in that location, though I would much prefer something that’s less corporate, less chain-like, and more committed to quality.”

Makers Union coming soon sign now up: Read More
