As readers know, the waterfront in Old Town Alexandria gets a new dining experience Monday, June 8 as Mid-States Management Group of Annapolis opens Blackwall Hitch in space adjacent to The Torpedo Factory.
Blackwall Hitch honors the heritage of the Chesapeake Bay with a modern interpretation of a classic coastal tavern. The culinary team is lead by Culinary Institute of America graduate Chef Michael Wagner. Working in both the restaurant industry and as a private chef he comes from a background of fine dining.
Blackwall Hitch’s menu draws upon classic American techniques that are regionally and seasonally inspired. Complementing the dining experience is a lively bar with a creative cocktail, wine and beer program.
The restaurant’s walls of windows bring the outside in with breathtaking views of the Potomac River from all angles. Accommodating 315 seats inside the two level restaurant has expansive outdoor seating for 105.
Taking advantage of its riverfront location, Blackwall Hitch offers a patio overlooking the water plus a second level deck that includes a separate bar.
Designed to be sophisticated yet comfortable Blackwall Hitch offers flexible gathering spaces with both private and semi-private dining options for special events.
A live music schedule features an eclectic mix of acoustic acts and bands.
