Potomac's Grilled Oyster Company Opens Today for Dinner
Bethesda and Chevy Chase residents may recognize the founders from Clyde’s Restaurant Group and O’Donnell’s Sea Grill.
Potomac’s latest seafood joint opens Sept. 5 in the Cabin John Shopping Center.
The Grilled Oyster Company will start serving dinner on Wednesday at 4 p.m. and will be open for lunch beginning Tuesday, Sept. 11, according to Bethesda Magazine.
The restaurant will serve dishes such as grilled oyster, fish, crab, mussels and Old Bay fries. Washingtonian posted a tentative lunch menu on its website.
Husband-and-wife team Valerie and Rick Dugan have been putting the final touches on the first solo venture in their 25 years of Washington restaurant service. Bethesda and Chevy Chase residents may recognize the two from Clyde’s Restaurant Group and O’Donnell’s Sea Grill.
On an August visit to snap a photo of the coming restaurant, Patch ran into Larry Miller inspecting the menu posted in the window of the restaurant. Miller said he definitely planned a visit when the restaurant opens to see if the execution lives up to the menu.
"Looking at this menu, it tells me that it will fit in very well with an urban shopping center," Miller said. "It's a nice mix. You have sandwiches, you have crabs, mussels and this Chesapeake Ciopino—hope it's good! If it's well seasoned, I'll be a regular."
