Back-to-back openings of steakhouse concept bringing local seafood, dry-aged steaks to DMV, Delmarva
Newly-formed Coastline Restaurant Group will bring the third location of Harvest Tide Steakhouse to the Washington, DC area this summer after an upcoming opening in Bethany, Beach, Delaware this spring. The first location of the concept by Danio Somoza, owner and executive chef, opened in Lewes, Delaware in 2018.
Born in El Salvador, Somoza started his career in the kitchen at the age of 19 and is self-taught. His restaurants reflect the chef’s focus on elevated dining emphasizing the use of local produce, seafood and dry-aged meats.
The group also operates Zoca Modern Mexican Restaurant in Bethany, which opened in 2019, and Coastline Craft Kitchen Food Truck, launched in 2020. At Zoca, dishes like the Pescado Red Snapper and Mexican Paella reflect an elevated, Modern Mexican cuisine experience.
Donna Serafini joined Somoza’s team in 2020. She serves as director of Operations and is a Coastline partner. Taking point on many facets of the business, she’s involved with new concept design, operational procedures and beverage program implementation. Cocktails from the bar reflect her touch, and combine fresh, seasonal fruits, herbs and purees that complement the restaurants’ dishes.
A newly-designed banquet room on the third floor in downtown Bethany Beach provides splendid, veranda views of the ocean and an iconic totem pole. Juli Mills, director of events and catering is gearing up for the season as guests and local businesses start requesting small and large spaces for events.
Coastline Restaurant Group will open the Capitol Hill location of Harvest Tide at 212 7th Street Southeast in Washington, according to a company announcement. Capitol Hill Corner had noted previously that the steakhouse will take the space of former Aqua al 2, seating 150 people indoors and 20 at the sidewalk cafe.
