The Ivy City SmokeHouse Platter

If you haven’t yet checked out Ivy City SmokeHouse in Ivy City (1356 Okie Street, NE…right off New York Avenue), you need to this weekend.  Their market provides the most extensive selection of fresh seafood in the area at reasonable price levels.  The SmokeHouse is owned by Profish, the seafood wholesaler and retailer that provides seafood to many of the top restaurants in the city, and that connection helps keep the prices down.  In addition to fresh seafood, the market sells a variety of smoked seafood products (hence the name).  There is a large fish counter featuring the daily selection that is open to the public seven days a week.  If they don’t have the type of fish that you want, they can order it for you within a day or two.

Recently, the SmokeHouse expanded to create a tavern upstairs that serves dinner featuring the extensive selection of seafood that Profish carries.  The head chef of the Ivy City SmokeHouse Tavern is Alberto Baizano, a native of Mexico who comes from a fifth generation culinary family.  Chef Baizano, a graduate of the Morelos Culinary Institute, previously worked at a variety of well known DC restaurants including Occidental Grill, Zola, Cheff Geoff’s, and NoPa.  He specializes in seafood, especially ceviche.  While ceviche is not currently on the menu, we’re told that customers can expect to see it soon.
