The Anchor to open in Over-the-Rhine

Race Street is getting a second restaurant, just in time for the opening of Washington Park. The Anchor, an “urban seafood restaurant”, will open at 14th and Race. The owner, Derek dos Anjos, grew up in Cincinnati and recently moved back after 15 years in Brooklyn, where he operated a similar restaurant, “The Brooklyn Fish Camp,” which received “Best New Restaurant” from Time Out New York. The menu will feature casual seafood disdhes: fried clams, softshell crabs, lobster rolls and other beach-inspired dishes.

It will open at the same time as Washington Park, which inspired the concept.   dos Anjos believes that Washington Park can become the “anchor” of the Over-the-Rhine community– thus the restaurant name.
