The father-daughter team of George and Gwen Goodrich of The Hammond Kitchen & Craft Bar in Camas is developing a new restaurant and event space at Tidewater Cove Marina in Vancouver.
The Cove sits above an underground parking lot at the marina at 5731 S.E. Columbia Way. The finished project will include underground parking, a 5,700-square-foot dining room and bar on the main floor, and a 4,500-square-foot event space above.
The main dining room will seat 128 guests, with an additional 62 seats at the bar, and an outside patio will serve 68 people. A private dining area will accommodate 80 guests, along with two outdoor patios that seat 60 guests each. Fire pits will dot the outdoor spaces.
“There’s lots of wood like The Hammond,” said George Goodrich, “but lighter and brighter. We designed the space to provide a good view regardless of where you sit.” That view includes the marina and the Columbia River.
The food and drink program resembles The Hammond Kitchen & Craft Bar, with some riverside additions. Chef Dylan Reisch, of The Hammond, will run the food program, offering steaks, chops, pasta and starters. Menu options for those with particular dietary restrictions (vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free) will be marked with symbols on the menu. The drink menu will feature local beer, wine and spirits, as well as cocktails created by Gwen Goodrich and The Hammond’s beverage director, Jon Borth.
