Last week, I went to the grand opening of the new Phillips Seafood in Washington D.C If you walk over to the waterfront, you will notice this new restaurant dripping with chandeliers, a working fire place and a decorous crowd.
Naturally, the crowd ate inside this green plastic tent. We were greeted by a man in a crab suit and two volunteers who entered mine, Dennis’s and Vanessa’s names into a drawing. I forgot the contest but I hope I win.
Within sight, we found our seats by the water front. The water looked peaceful yet busy. So many boats were taking up space.
I’ve never been by the Washington D.C waterfront before. I’ve heard about it from a lot of people but I never took it upon myself to metro to this area. Dennis, Vanessa and I feasted on a lot of food. Each of our plates were piled with crabs, shrimp, fried chicken, potato salad, cole slaw, corn, and other goodies. Neither of us were able to finish everything since there was too much to choose from.
It’s been a year since I’ve eaten fresh crabs. Last year I got an invite to a clambake in Baltimore and sharpened my crab cracking skills. I’m really glad that Phillips Seafood gave everyone a mallet. It made the crab eating process a lot easier.
If you work in Washington D.C and need to unwind, I highly recommend that you take the metro to L’enfent Plaza. Get off on 7th street and walk a few blocks to the waterfront. There you will see the brand spanking new Phillips Seafood.
