The Chesapeake area is best known for its tasty seafood. And for a week in October, Washingtonians get to enjoy all the fish and oysters they want without traveling to the Eastern Shore!

Grillfish, 1200 New Hampshire Avenue NW, is celebrating Maryland seafood from Sunday, Oct. 2 through Sunday, Oct. 9 with the “From The Bay, For The Bay” Dine Out week-long event.  Partnering with The Maryland Department of Natural Resources and many other restaurants in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and the district, Grillfish will feature By The Bay selections, including local rockfish and James River oysters.

For every Maryland seafood dinner sold during the week, one dollar will be donated to the Oyster Recovery Partnership, a non-profit organization aimed at rebuilding the Chesapeake Bay’s oyster population.

By indulging in a Maryland seafood dinner, you will be contributing to the shell recycling program and the production and planting of baby oysters in the bay, all of which help filter the water and provide a healthy environment for the Bay’s marine life.

Grillfish is open to reservations for lunch and dinner. So enjoy some Eastern Shore edibles and help save the fish!
