“We are thrilled to be reopening for our 13th season, and to be a long-term restaurant here at The Wharf,” said Cantina Marina owner Nick Fontana.

“Cantina Marina is an institution in Southwest - and for all of the District,” said Monty Hoffman, founder and CEO of PN Hoffman. “It is great to see D.C.’s only dock bar and restaurant reopening after the harsh winter. This will be a great kick-off to what will be an exciting spring at The Wharf.”

“We are hopeful that the patrons drawn to the waterfront to enjoy Cantina Marina will appreciate the experience of seeing the construction of The Wharf underway,” said David Brainerd, chief investment officer of Madison Marquette. “It’s great to see Cantina Marina reopen and thrive.”
