Dining and Drinks with a view

The Patio at Fish by José Andrés is ideally situated overlooking the Potomac Plaza. This vibrant casual expanse is just what locals and tourists alike are looking for as the Mid-Atlantic temperatures begin to rise. Grab a seat at the bar, settle in to a sumptuous lounge chair or pull up to one of the communal tables to enjoy a cold beverage and classic Chesapeake fare. When you’re here, you’ll dine as they do in Maryland: crack your own crabs, slurp freshly-shucked oysters, eat corn straight from the cob and finish it all off with an ice cold beer. In the afternoon, snack on a variety of hot dogs – we go beyond the traditional frank here! – in addition to other tasty bites.
