Oyster - Seafood & Rawbar


Recently I've been craving oysters and today I went with my friend W after work to Oyster - Seafood & Rawbar for buck-a-shuck oysters. They have 50 cent per oyster from 4-5pm and the regular buck-a-shuck from 5-7pm every weekday.

Oyster is located in the Old Stock Exchange Building on Howe Street. It's a very quaint place. The ceiling looks very nice.

This design was on a table in the lobby
They weren't exaggerating when the reviews I've read about the place said it was small. It was basically just a room as big as my kitchen. We were put in the corner and I had to squish in because the chair was blocking the way. Makes for a very intimate dinner lol. In fact there was almost not enough room to put all the food we ordered!

The shucker
We started off with a dozen Effingham oysters which came with a variety of sauces. I don't know what they were though...
Mmm Effingham oysters. They taste like the sea.
After the oysters, which were very fresh and delicious, we shared a crab cake appetizer and I ordered a steamer bowl and W ordered a clam chowder. It was a little weird because when I ordered the mussel and clam bowl, the waiter said that they didn't have any mussels...so I ordered the other bowl, which costs a little more since it had prawns and crab in addition to mussels and clams. I assumed that they would compensate the mussels with more clams or something...but the bowl had a lot of mussels...hmmm.

Crab cakes
New England Clam Chowder
 The chowder was not even half way full in this jar...

Mixed Steamer Bowl
The bread bites that came with both the chowder and the steamer bowl was so good.

You can check out the Oyster website here to look at their menu and make reservations. I recommend only going for the oysters and not for an actual dinner. Even though we both agree that the food was delicious, it is a little pricy and was not very filling or maybe we just ordered the wrong things to eat.
