More seafood for The Wharf

Fabio and Maria Trabocchi have yet another new project on their plates: a Spanish seafood restaurant at The Wharf development in Southwest. The Fiola Mare operator's restaurant will stretch over two floors and serve dishes like paella. They'll even have waterside cabanas and a wine cellar. The restaurant joins such other projects as Requin (which will also emphasize seafood), an Asian place from Cathal Armstrong and more at the development. The pair is also at work on another new restaurant, Sfoglina. [Washingtonian]
