Heavy Seas Alehouse sets sail from Baltimore to drop a second anchor in Rosslyn next week.
The new restaurant, located at 1501 Wilson Blvd., Suite 105, will open to the public Thursday, Feb. 27. (It looks like they are still hiring — check details on their craigslist ad here.) The new restaurant will offer Baltimore’s finest craft beer coupled with outstanding seasonal cuisine from Executive Chef Matt Seeber.
For Heavy Seas’ menu, Chef Seeber highlights fresh seafood sourced locally whenever possible. Starters include local oysters, soft pretzels with crab, grilled sausage sliders and Tasso ham hushpuppies.
Diners will also be able to choose from small plates like chicory salad with a soft poached egg or Prince Edward Island mussels in a broth of Heavy Seas Gold Ale seasoned with fennel, roasted garlic butter, tomato and, in true Baltimore fashion, Old Bay.
Larger dishes have their place here as well with options like savory braised rabbit fettuccine and pan roasted sea scallops. Seeber’s bill of fare pushes expectations of Alehouse food overboard.
Beer aficionados won’t be disappointed with the array of beers able to be paired with any dish. Heavy Seas offers a selection of six year-round drafts on tap including their flagship brew, Loose Cannon, a triple-hopped IPA with notes of grapefruit, herbs and pine, as well as the Small Craft Pilsner, Peg Leg Imperial Stout, Gold Ale, Powder Monkey Pale Ale and Cutlass Amber Lager.
The bar will have rotating seasonal drafts like the Winter Storm and Riptide White IPA. As advocates for the microbrewing industry, the Alehouse is proud to feature a selection of craft beers local to the DMV alongside Heavy Seas taps. Now food and beer enthusiasts alike can plunder the stores of Baltimore's best craft brewery just outside of DC.
The restaurant will offer lunch and dinner Monday through Sunday; the restaurant will open each day at 11 a.m. For more information, visit Heavy Seas Alehouse online at www.heavyseasalehouse.com, follow the team on Facebook and Twitter.
