The following is an updated list of restaurant and retail offerings coming to The Wharf in 2017, as part of the development’s Phase I grand opening:

Social Restaurant Group’s 9,800-square-foot concept La Vie, their largest venture to-date, will feature French-Mediterranean cuisine that includes an extensive moules-frites menu, a wide selection of sweet and savory tartines and a variety of coastal-inspired beverages. Situated along The Wharf’s most expansive and stunning vistas, their space boasts a 1,100-square-foot waterfront terrace, and serves the resident pool deck above. La Vie also includes private access to a 5,000-square-foot rooftop terrace, poised to be Washington’s premier events space.

District Hardware and Bike, the nearly 50-year old family-owned hardware store, full-service bike shop and now café and water sport retailer, is expanding from its current location in Foggy Bottom. Their new 6,300-square-foot location will be designed by Natalie Park Design Studio and is the latest in a series of expansions for the store, which has been owned and run by the Conway family for three generations. To strengthen the concept, District Hardware and Bike has teamed up with local coffee roaster, Vigilante Coffee, to help design and launch the new café and coffee bar.

Cordial Craft Wine, Beer & Spirits by Eric Rohleder is expanding from its current operation in Union Market. His 525-square-foot location at The Wharf will feature a water view and products from independent importers and boutique distributors across the globe.

America’s largest pharmacy retailer CVS will occupy a 9,000-square-foot space at The Wharf.
