Back in August, Dell’Anima’s Bobby Werhane and Houston’s Josh Morgan went before CB2 to make the case for the Maryland-style fish shack, to be called Rockfish, that they were planning to build in the old Bar Q space. Five months later, the restaurant, now called Choptank, is scheduled to open next week.
Per Urban Daddy, the place will open on Monday, and be decked out like an old but scrupulously rehabbed ship, complete with burlap nets. Expect a big raw bar, shrimp seasoned with Old Bay, and, of course, crab cakes.
Choptank, incidentally, is the name of a major tributary to the Chesapeake Bay, although at first glance, it more brings to mind a motorcycle repair shop.
