Have you stopped by Bethesda's new yet?
If not, feast your eyes on the cool new design elements the seafood eatery is bringing to Bethesda Row.
The restaurant was designed by Bethesda-based firm Streetsense, which converted the 388-square-foot space formerly occupied by chocolate shop Cacao into a "beach shack chic" casual carry-out shop complete with antique buoys and driftwood collected from New England shores.
The transformation took about three months, with a goal of having the shop open in time for the summer season, according to a press release.
"The nautical accessories are highlighted as whimsical focal points while doubling as a disguise for all the necessary back-of-house essentials,” Sumaya Kaufman, Streetsense lead designer and project manager, said in a statement.
The seafood eatery opened its doors on Bethesda Lane Thursday, serving up favorites including Maine-style seafood rolls and clam chowder.
