One big platter of raw bivalve goodness!Everything is absolutely so fresh. You can tell because it smells and tastes like the sea. Not fishy at all. The sea urchin is very creamy and fresh. You eat the "tongues" which are the orange parts. They just melt into your mouth. With the oysters, they give you a menu of what you order so you can compare them. Everything is so good. I like them all! But my favorite were the Virginica's because they were very creamy and the flavor was intense. After 26 oysters, I'm stuffed. But very happy.
13 different kinds! 2 each!I love this place. It's old school. But they're very serious about their seafood. Freshness is their top priority. That's why they run out of things all the time. They only order enough food for the night. They don't like to refrigerate anything. That's dedication to food right there. And I'm a big fan! Oyster Bar, I'll be back!
