About Us

Tim Ma | Executive Chef and Owner

Tim risked it all 6 years ago by leaving behind a career in engineering to follow his dream of opening a restaurant. He along with his now wife Joey, quit their jobs, moved to New York City, where he enrolled in The French Culinary Institute. After completing his culinary program and an externship at a 2-Michelin Star Restaurant in NYC, they decided to move to St. Thomas, USVI. They lived in St. Thomas just long enough to figure out their next move which was to open their own restaurant back in Northern Virginia. In 2009, Tim and Joey with the help of family and friends opened their first restaurant which they found on craigslist and funded solely on credit cards. The first year was not easy by any means but it taught them to persevere and push forward with their dream.  Fast-forward to 2013, Tim and Joey opened Water & Wall, a neighborhood new American restaurant.  They have loved getting to know all of you, the neighborhood and are very excited to be part of this community. Though, they don’t operate their first restaurant anymore, they do stay busy with their 3 kids, Charlotte, Chase and Camden, their deli in Vienna, Chase the Submarine, and their new restaurant in the works, Kyirisan, which will open early 2016 in Shaw, DC.

Margaret Perry | General Manager

On Margaret’s third birthday, she asked for her grandmother’s famous bundt cake. Secret ingredient: Anchor Steam Beer. Thus began a lifetime love affair with great beer. (Somewhere along the way, she also discovered wine and fresh, seasonal cooking.) After majoring in “useful” subjects (literature and philosophy) and working in a “useful” field (non-profit administration) she revisited those early loves, and began working full time in the food industry. Before coming to Water & Wall, she managed a neighborhood wine shop and cafe, and created a line of artisan preserves and pickles which she sold online. On her days off, you’ll find her at the zoo.
