NORFOLK, Va. – The Cordish Companies announced Monday that Rappahannock Oyster Co. will be joining other local and national restaurants at the new Waterside District.

The area is set to open in April of 2017 and Rappahannock Oyster will bring their family history and sustainable oyster farming practices to the mix.

Travis and Ryan Croxton are cousins and co-owners of Rappahannock Oyster Co. The two took over the family business in 2001 and successfully revitalized Virginia’s oyster industry at a time when few oyster beds remained.

Rappahannock Oyster Co. at Waterside District will be located in The Market, a 30,000 square foot, two-level anchor concept located in the heart of Waterside District. The Market will have a variety of local and regional food and beverage concepts and serve as the home for entertainment, festivals and family attractions.

Rappahannock Oyster will join Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse, The Fudgery, and Blue Moon TapHouse, as well as Cogan’s Pizza, Carolina Cupcakery, and Starr Hill, which will also be part of The Market. Other additions to the area are expected to be announced in the neat future.
