The owners of popular Maryland breakfast chain Milk & Honey Café have quietly started accepting customers at Catch 22, their Southern seafood spot serving fried crab legs and shrimp-topped burgers, with a grand opening scheduled for next month.

The new restaurant inside a former Imm Thai location (5832 Georgia Avenue NW) is offering lunch, dinner, and brunch in a nautical-themed dining room with gold accents and plush lounge seating.

Catch 22 comes from chef Sammy Davis and co-owner and managing partner Monique Rose Simms, who have Milk & Honey Cafés in College Park and Bowie in addition to Milk & Cheese in Beltsville.

They imported their best-selling seafood burger to Catch 22: a beef patty with hickory smoked bacon, Cajun shrimp, white American cheese, and secret sauce.

The menu is made up of appetizers, soups, salads, surf and turf, and pastas. Here’s a look at the finalized lineup:
