If projections are right, there will be another dining option in Eastport come January! The Blackwall Hitch is scheduled to open at the former Rockfish.
The Blackwall Hitch is owned by a restaurant group headed by Larry Ray, Jamie King, and Derek Fink, along with other investors. The group owns several Greene Turtle franchises in Pasadena, Gambrills, Annapolis, and soon in Northern Virginia. In addition, another Blackwall Hitch will be opening in Old Town Alexandria in the summer of 2014.
Ray, the former owner of the Big Vanilla Athletic Clubs recently sold the Arnold club to the Y of Central Maryland to concentrate on his restaurant ventures.
