The Wharf recently announced that the project will be wrapped up on October 12 of this year. Which businesses can you expect there?
First, the bad news: If you were expecting Cantina Marina to return, that’s a no. @eat_dc tweeted:
So what is coming? The full list below, courtesy of The Wharf:
- Philippe Chow (7,373 sf located at 635 Wharf Street adjacent to The Green on the street level of Amaris): An iconic New York City restaurant for almost two decades, Philippe Chow has become a staple for Manhattan – including athletes, musicians, and movie stars – who crave Chef Chow’s spin on traditional Chinese cuisine with results that are modern, flavorful, and theatrical. Chef Chow’s world-renowned menu of Beijing-style dishes has pioneered the way for elevated Chinese cuisine in the US, cementing his influence in NYC’s culinary scene and nightlife. In Fall 2022, Philippe Chow plans to open in DC at The Wharf, which will feature a remarkable covered patio area adjacent to The Green with sweeping waterfront views of the Potomac River.
