Big Fish Grill
The Riverfront is awash with dining options—from seafood houses ideal for business lunches to casual noshes at a brewpub to an ice cream parlor with family appeal. Veritas Wine and Craft Beer offers boutique-style shopping and knowledgeable service.
Riverfront Market, sited in a historic warehouse, is an open, Euro-style market selling local produce, meats, seafood, baked goods, Asian foods and more. The Riverfront Development Corporation (RDC) recently bought back the property and plans to update the market with new seating, flooring and lighting.
“We see the market as a wonderful breakfast destination, something that will be very popular with people who live and work on the Riverfront,” says Megan McGlinchey, RDC deputy director.
