Award-winning chef and restaurateur Robert Wiedmaier is adding to his portfolio Tuesday with the debut of Siren, a new fine dining establishment folded into Scott Circle newcomer, The Darcy hotel.

The restaurant was designed with nautical themes in mind; guests should expect to be surrounded by ocean blue walls and booths, leather chairs, artwork involving mermaids and tattoos, and velvet curtains restrained by ropes secured with sailing knots. An exterior patio, which should accommodate up to 40 guests once operational, is expected to house twin fire pits.

Wiedmaier and chef/partner Brian McBride recruited Brine alum John Critchley to oversee the kitchen at this new venture. The opening menu features seafood towers ($70-$150) packed with freshly shucked oysters, clams, Maine lobster, and more; four types of caviar (trout roe to Sasanian Royal Osetra); specialty items (Japanese sea urchin, yellowtail crudo); whole fish (roasted fluke, salt-crusted royal bass); and a pair of meat dishes (Shenandoah lamb, roast quail).

Status: Opening for dinner at 5 p.m. 1515 Rhode Island Avenue NW; website
