Nick’s Riverside Grille and Tony & Joe’s Now Open at the Georgetown Waterfront

Restored from flood damage, the popular Georgetown restaurants are back in business.

Eater DC brings word that flood-ravaged Washington Harbour restaurants Nick’s Riverside Grill and Tony & Joe’s are now making full use of their revamped dining rooms. Partner Greg Casten tells Eater that the eateries began serving indoors (the patios remained open during the remodel) on August 27, though a grand-opening celebration is still in the works.

Return customers to Nick’s will notice that the restaurant has grown. As part-owner Nick Cibel told us last month, it moved into the neighboring space that previously belonged to the shuttered Cabanas. Meanwhile, Eater reports, Tony & Joe’s has lots of windows for taking in a panoramic view of the Kennedy Center and a relocated bar with improved views. Heated outdoor bars will debut in a few weeks.

Last month, Cibel sent us working menus for both places, which are being overseen by chef David Stein from Bistro St. Michaels in St. Michaels, Maryland. Already stopped by the new versions of these Georgetown stalwarts? We'd love to hear about your experience in the comments.
