Blue Water Seafood closed its Asheville and Hendersonville locations suddenly last year, citing the tough economy. Now it’s back.
From the Hendersonville Times-News:
For Reiner Lawitschka, it’s all about sourcing the freshest fish available, cooking it to bring out the best flavor, and thoughtfully pairing it with the best wines.
Lawitschka, the new owner of Blue Water Seafood, is keeping the restaurant and market’s focus on bringing only the freshest possible seafood to the mountains.
“It’s not easy to find dependable suppliers to find excellent, fresh seafood on a regular basis,” said Lawitschka. He bought the business from David and Tracy Griffin, who started Blue Water Seafood in 2003.
On a visit to the area this fall, Lawitschka and his wife, Sofia, saw the sign announcing the closing of Blue Water Seafood business and the decision to relocate to Hendersonville was solidified.
The couple have moved here from Miami Beach by way of Morocco, where they lived for two years and had a seafood restaurant business.
