“You either have to be really crazy or really have the vision to make it happen… or maybe both,” Jody Manor, owner of Alexandria’s famous Bittersweet — as well as the much anticipated new eatery on the waterfront, The Waterfront Market — told K Street Magazine.
Hosting an intimate crowd for a preview of the space and menu items last week, Manor detailed how his new concept would take full advantage of his current industry network, and stunning water views, when it opens Monday, featuring gourmet market offerings, outdoor seating and grab-and-go meals.
In a space that had been all-but abandoned for close to a decade, The Waterfront Market and Cafe brings the area back to life, offering custom sandwiches, flatbreads, sushi, weekend brunch, and other quick service items as well as gourmet groceries, a comprehensive selection of craft beers and local/international wines.
Throw in close to two dozen seats right on the waterfront boardwalk and you’ve found a community gathering spot that exceeds culinary expectations.
*The Waterfront Market is located at 7 King Street in Alexandria.
