About our CompanyNo Goodbyes @ The LINE DC is an all-day neighborhood hangout devoted to the ingredients in DCs own backyard The Chesapeake Bay region. Chef Opie Crooks (a StarChefs Rising Stars Award-winner) and the No Goodbyes team tap the farmers, fishers, and ranchers of the East Coast, to create an eclectic mix of feel-good dishesfrom carrot cake oatmeal to Wild & Wonderful ramp spaghettimorning, noon, and night. They say Atlantic sailors in the 1800s had a rule for their friends and family each time they left shore never say goodbye.
