Pub, Live Music Venue, and Ethnic Cuisine Announced for The Wharf

The Wharf continues to roll out its restaurant and entertainment lineup for the first phase of development which is scheduled to open starting in October 2017. Four new establishments have been announced: 
  • The Brighton: A “high-energy” waterfront pub by the Hilton brothers, who are known for places such as The Gibson at 14th and U streets NW and Chez Billy Sud in Georgetown. 
  • Pearl Street Warehouse: A small-format, live music venue and tavern on Pearl Street, an east-west alley running parallel to Maine Avenue by Nick Fontana, Bruce Gates and Henry Gandy, the owners of Cantina Marina. 
  • Kaliwa: An Asian fusion restaurant on Pearl Street with Filipino, Thai, and Korean cuisine by Cathal Armstrong. 
  • A yet-to-be-named Indian concept by chef K.N. Vinod and Surfy Rahman, who operates Indique and Bombay Bistro. 

These are in addition to the other restaurants and retailers announced in recent months. So far, there are 16 confirmed retail tenants. Needless to say, these new dining options will vastly change the restaurant scene in Southwest!

"Ethnic cuisine"? Does that include white people's food?
