PassionFish Bethesda

Even at 5:30 p.m. on a Tuesday night in November, the four-sided bar at PassionFish is packed. And no wonder. The snazzy new seafood restaurant, which opened this past fall, hosts a helluva happy hour, with cocktails, beer, wine and appealing bar bites such as “Chesapeake Fish Fry,” crabcake sliders and Peruvian ceviche going for $5 each. The action doesn’t dissipate at 6:30 after the deal is done, as the comfortable seating, friendly bartenders, good food and lively atmosphere keep this posh party barge afloat ’til closing.
