The Tackle Box, a Georgetown seafood restaurant that bills itself as a “lobster shack,” will open its Cleveland Park location in April, it announced Thursday.
Its future home at 3407 Connecticut Ave. N.W. has been empty for years after a McDonald’s left. The storefront has had “Coming Soon/Tackle Box/Winter 2011″ written in its window since October.
The Washington Post describes the Tackle Box as the “casual spinoff and neighbor” to Hook, a more formal seafood restaurant on Georgetown’s M Street Northwest with the same owner. It serves dishes such as lobster rolls, fried clams and wood-grilled trout.
The Cleveland Park location will be 4,000 square feet, much larger than the 1,350-square-foot Georgetown location, the Post reported in June when Hook founder Jonathan Umbel first announced the new location.
It will likely have a raw bar and a standard bar, the Post said.
