|Tony and Joe's in Washington Harbour|
Encircled by tall windows, with cascading water features, nautical wood, and stylish appointments, its newly remodeled dining room feels like a posh ocean liner. An eating bar faces the open kitchen. Popular seafood dishes from the restaurant's past - crab cakes, lobster, rockfish, mussels and shrimp cocktail - will be menu staples, and specials featuring Chesapeake area ingredients will be introduced daily.
Both the dining room and patio overlook a massive fountain plaza that has also been given a 21st century upgrade. The new fountain can soar sixty feet high, and is accompanied by a high-tech light show. Seasonally, it will be transformed into a skating rink. We’re told it will be larger than the one in NYC’s Rockefeller Center (3000 K St. NW; 202-944-4545).
