NORFOLK — Fish tacos, homemade sauces and more beer are coming to the Waterside District this fall.

North Carolina’s Stripers Seafood Restaurant will open a new 7,400-square-foot location at the Waterside District this fall, joining a growing list of places to grab a bite on the Elizabeth River.

“We look forward to bringing in a waterfront restaurant with a welcoming, casual vibe that will fit perfectly with the rest of Waterside District,” Glenn Sutch, president of Waterside District, said in a news release.

The restaurant will have 30 beers on tap and its culinary focal point is seafood, but it will also serve pasta, steaks, sandwiches and more.

Chef Alfredo Landazuri is developing the menu and said he aims to give the Norfolk location a unique dining experience.

“We’ll continue to make our dishes from scratch, using fresh local seafood and products,” Landazuri said. “And we’ll keep our most popular menu items while providing and even broader range of affordable, accessible options that everyone can enjoy.”

The Waterside District opens Thursday, May 4, and will celebrate a grand opening with a free Weezer show May 11.
