The new location of the buzzy oyster bar, slated to open in the fall of 2022, will take over 4,800-square feet washed in a neutral white and beige palette designed by Georgetown architect firm //3877. The new spot will also open with a covered, all-weather patio with fans, heaters, and televisions; an indoor-outdoor bar; a seafood menu with over ten varieties of oysters; and special events like oyster parties on City Ridge’s Great Lawn. It’s the fifth King Street Oyster Bar.
Meanwhile Tatte bakery is moving into a 3,100-square foot spot this summer, its sixth location in metro D.C. The quick-expanding Boston import with an Israeli-leaning menu first arrived in D.C. in 2020. The newest outlet will have all-day dining, weekend brunch, coffee, and a separate gluten-free menu. Tatte is also opening a location in Foggy Bottom.
Other tenants in place for City Ridge include Wegman’s as the anchor, plus Equinox fitness and KinderCare day care center.
