Fun & Funky Fat Fish Now Open
Briana Keefe, owner of Toastique and Chopsmith, is again expanding her growing empire at the District Wharf with the opening of Fat Fish, a new restaurant serving bowls, rolls, and twists. The new establishment opens today at the location formerly occupied by Blue Bottle Coffee.
Translating the menu is easy. Fat Fish is serving fresh poke bowls, sushi-like hand rolls, and Taiyaki, a sweet frozen Japanese treat made with a waffle cone in the shape of a fish filled with a swirl of vegan ice cream and finished with your choice of toppings.
The menu consists largely of plant and fresh seafood cuisine with Asian inspired flavors. Everything served is made from scratch in the Fat Fish kitchens to ensure freshness and quality.
Fat Fish represents Keefe’s on-going dedication to fun, healthy food. She says, “Fat Fish is a purveyor of healthy food, environmental stewardship and locally sourced products.” Keefe is especially committed to the connection between the food we eat and the environment around us.
“We know what we eat impacts the earth as much as ourselves, so sustainability is at the core of everything we touch. We’re not just dedicated to being environmentally friendly, we’re passionate about protecting the natural systems that sustain our everyday life. Through this philosophy we serve fresh-from-the-earth foods with a groovy twist, says Keefe.
Reflecting upon the opening of Fat Fish, Keefe says, “we hope to be a fun, funky, healthy fast casual that caters to both your dietary needs and your appetite!”
Menu items run from $8 to $18.
Keefe’s other businesses Toastique and Chopsmith can be found along Maine Ave. in the Phase part of the DC Wharf. Toastique offers fresh pressed juices, smoothies, and fully loaded toasts such as the Avocado Smash, Smoked Salmon, and, Greek Hummus toasts.
Chopsmith features fresh sandwiches, salads, bowls and omelets.
