Blackwall HItch, is a restaurant that opened TODAY on the waterfront in Alexandria, VA. It is located in a former food court, so it is huge! It has an outdoor area in front and in back of the building, and boasts two spacious dining floors, several bars (including a patio bar) and seating for large groups. I thought the decor was beautiful and the signature blue canning jars were a nice touch. It also has live music Wed.-Sat. and a jazz brunch on Sunday’s. The food and the ambience were both great! I definitely recommend dining at Blackwall Hitch. I’ll be planning a brunch date soon!
Ok, the food first:
The Prince Edward Island (PEI) Canada mussels grow naturally in nutrient-rich waters. The mussels were huge and have superior flavor. This was an excellent appetizer!
Now the decor:
