With a name like Brine, you can expect shellfish to factor heavily into the menu at this new DC eatery. The seafood-centric restaurant places a big emphasis on oysters in particular, sourcing them from the best purveyors up and down the east and west coasts. Whether you stop by for brunch or dinner, you’ll be able to savor the best oysters from nearby waters in Virginia, the far-away shores of Maine, or even the coast of British Columbia.

You’re welcome to sit down inside or outside, grab takeout in-house, or call ahead for curbside pickup. When you do, start with some of the signature raw oysters or try the broiled Bourbon Street oysters with andouille sausage, red pepper-corn succotash, parmesan, and a corn bread crumble. For the main course, keep going with the seafood theme and try the crab cakes or shrimp linguini, or opt for a prime NY strip steak or baby back ribs instead. Add a signature cocktail—perhaps a Dark ‘N Stormy or a Pimm’s Cup—for the full Brine experience.
