The Georgetown BID has taken to calling the open square near the corner of Grace and Potomac streets “Fish Market Square”. GM’s not sure there ever was a fish market at this space, but fairly soon a genuine fish monger will be moving in just a block away.
In the bustling Grace Street development Neopol Savory Smokery will soon be opening. This Baltimore-based smoke fish provider may be familiar to DC foodies because they have another shop over in Union Market. Their flagship location is in Belvedere Square Market in Baltimore, where to do all of their production work in a 700-square-foot stall.
The restaurant’s Union Market location offers salads, sandwiches and other smoked-fish delivery devices. Even better, on the weekends it offers bagels too, because bagels and smoked fish go together like pb & j. GM expects the Georgetown location to offer much the same menu.
Georgetown is still in need of a genuine fish monger to replace the dearly departed Cannon’s. But this is a good start.
