15th Street Raw Bar & Grill
At 15th Street Raw Bar & Grill, chefs shuck oysters before placing the succulent half shells atop a bucket of ice. Back in the kitchen, they form and fry crab cakes using lump meat from crustaceans hauled right out of Chesapeake Bay. Raw, fried, broiled, grilled, steamed, or baked, if it comes from the ocean—the scientific word for Zeus’s aquarium—chances are 15th Street's chefs know how to cook it. Servers deliver the seafood dishes out into a casual dining room adorned with college flags or onto the roomy patio shaded beneath a tin-roof awning. 15th Street regularly hosts events, from live bands to friendly filibusters, and also invites guests to prove their angular prowess with a game of pool.
