PassionFish,the upscale seafood restaurant at Reston Town Center, will expand into Bethesda next year.

PassionFish, part of chef Jeff Tunks’ local collection of dining spots, opened at 11960 Democracy Dr. in 2008. It has been a consistent top restaurant pick in Washingtonian Magazine’s “100 Very Best” list. It also was named one of America’s “20 Best Restaurants of 2009” and “15 Restaurants Not to Miss” by Esquire Magazine.

This will be the first Maryland location for Tunks’ Passionfood Hospitality company. He also owns DC Coast,  Acadiana, Ceiba, DC Coast, District Commons, Burger Tap & Shake and Fuego Cocina y Tequileria.

The Bethesda PassionFish will be will be located at the corner of Woodmont and Bethesda Avenues as part of Lot 31, a residential and retail development. It will be on the ground floor of The Darcy, a luxury condo building.

“Announcing PassionFish as our first retail tenant for the project is the right choice given the tremendous success that has been achieved by all the Passion Food Hospitality restaurants in the Metro DC area.” Monty Hoffman, CEO of PN Hoffman, one of the building’s developers, said in a statement.
