Catch on the Avenue is Alexandria’s newest seafood-centric restaurant, and it’s already attracting a crowd. The kitchen serves up plenty of Southern-style favorites like the hot catfish sandwich with corn succotash and the fish and grits with andouille sausage, as well as a handful of entrees with Asian-inspired flavors, like the bang bang shrimp with chili panko or the miso-marinated bavette steak.
Whatever you choose, you’ll be able to enjoy it in style, as the entire restaurant channels a modern-rustic beach vibe. The walls are covered in aquatic-themed artwork (think weathered boards with large-format decals and 3D metal sculptures) while the seating and lighting are sleek and ultra-modern. Get together with a few friends for dinner, or bring a crowd from the office for after-dinner drinks and snacks at the bar. Happy hour specials include discounted beer, wine, and cocktails, as well as appetizers like shrimp and veggie dumplings or trout-deviled eggs.
