Venue Info

Jessie Taylor Seafood is named for the boat that Clayton Evans would drive as a child along with his father and brother when they would sell their fresh crabs, clams, oysters, and fish along the Potomac. But though the vesicle is no longer, business is still conducted on the water; Jessie Taylor Seafood is located on a long steel barge attached to a cement pier. Seafood is arranged into display cases that span the length of the shop, and you can just as easily pick out shrimp, crab legs, and black squid as you can herring, mackerel, frogs’ legs, and live snails. And if you’re looking for something a little less raw, ask for a taste of the New England clam chowder, which bubbles and brims in pots like a witch’s cauldron concoction.
