Family Meals Available at the District Wharf

Several Wharf restaurants are offering a special on their menus called a “Family Meal,” as a way for a busy family to treat themselves with a restaurant meal from the Wharf. Other restaurants here at the Wharf have gotten creative with their distributors to provide local fresh ingredients for a “Make it At Home” experience for their customers.

We here at Wharf Life DC have tried these out and highly recommend them for their ease of preparation, creativity, and for the locally sourced ingredients, you can’t find this anywhere else.
