Tackle Box Opens in Cleveland Park

Last night I checked out Tackle Box's newest  Cleveland Park location.   Local VIPs such as Carlos Gray (Mayor Vincent Gray's son), WUSA 9's Andrea Roane, NBC 4's John Schriffen, Capitol File Magazine Editor-In-Chief Kate Bennett, 94.7 FRESH FM's Tommy McFly, KStreetKate's Kate Michael and Luxxery Med Spa Celebrity Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ayman Hakki among others made a toast to owner Jonathan Umbel's second seafood shack.  The lobster was delicious and the restaurant is spacious.  Stop by the next time you're in the area.
