Today, Ray's Boathouse at 6049 Seaview Ave. N.W. pulls back the curtain to reveal freshened-up digs. Ray's makeover comes with a new 30-foot mahogany bar in the middle of the dining room, a weekly rotating five-course tasting menu, and revamped decor that gives a hearty nod to vintage Christ-Craft boats.
In other news, DeLong's DeLuxe, a family-owned burger joint, is slated to open next month in Lakewood. The walk-up stand at 8901 Bridgeport Way will feature a patio and covered grass courtyard for year-round seating. Almost a dozen burger combos are in the works, along with Frito chili dogs, onion rings, and Creamsicle shakes.
