last night you could follow the debate walking down 18th, even over the downpour. maybe not such a shocker but slightly odd nonetheless, in person.

But in recent years, newer residents surrounding the Islander complained about the restaurant’s late-night noisiness. The tension reached a critical stage in 2013, when a group of residents protested the restaurant’s efforts for a liquor license renewal.

I wonder if they tried to work things out with the club before going to the liquor board? The Islander had been there since 1994, so the new folks should have been aware that U Street can be loud at late hours

http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/housingcomplex/2015/07/28/fish-market-tenants-say-d-c-waterfront-developer-are-trying-to-destroy-their-businesses/

A lawsuit filed by the seafood sellers against the developers. Most of the comments on the posting though appear to be from newbie locals critical of the longtime market. I like shopping at the Maine Ave wharf even though I have heard some say the seafood available is no different from that which you get in your local Giant, Safeway, etc. The incoming development there is undoubtably making it harder to park there if one drives. Naturally, a commenter on the posting just blames those who are parking without suggesting that maybe the developers should try to make parking available. Also, I wonder what the parking plans are for the new IMP Arena that is going to be built there (or will folks just be expected to metro).

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 29 July 2015 17:15 (1 month ago) Permalink

"Harder to park" on SE waterfront is akin to "harder to breathe" on the moon. It's always been terrible, now it's worse. I used to work and eat near there (when the Coast Guard was at Buzzard Point).

It is also a dreadful walk from the subway (and it would be pretty conspicuous and inefficient to try bring a couple dozen steamed crabs home via Metro).

I think for my last crustaceanfest we had a driver circling the block while others nabbed the seafood.

Ye Mad Puffin, Wednesday, 29 July 2015 18:06 (1 month ago) Permalink

Yep. I bet the commenters have never bought any seafood from there.

When I used to see latenight music at h2O on the Waterfront and Zanzibar there used to be an underground parking garage there on the SW waterfront, but I never used that for when I was going to buy seafood at the Wharf.
