Rappahannock Oyster Co., the namesake venture behind Richmond’s Rapphannock restaurant, is rebounding from a fire that took place two weeks ago at its processing plant in Topping. In addition to bringing their existing operation back up to speed, Rappahannock has been working on new projects. Aiming for an April opening, Rappahannock plans to roll out its fifth oyster bar in the international terminal of the Northern Virginia airport. Traveling patrons can expect the usual suspects on the menu at the modern-meets-casual seafood den that will feature 90 seats and a wraparound bar. Croxton says they were approached about the potential project by Jackmont Hospitality, which operates One Flew South, the first-ever James Beard Award-nominated restaurant inside an airport.
