Never in a million years did we think that and idea we came up with over a grill at a backyard BBQ that congealed while doing shots at a bar would one day be getting stellar marks from no less an august publication than The New Yorker. At any rate we are reviewed in this week’s Tables For Two column:
With its white wainscoting and nautical paraphernalia, the room affects the look of some old dockside haunt. The menu follows suit, and is comprised mostly of no-fuss classics like fried oysters, skate wing, and steamers. The lobster rolls and clam rolls, made with nostalgia-tinged Sunbeam bread, are piled high with fish. There’s an unpretentious raw bar, craft beers, a small but well-chosen wine list. The predictable is leavened with notes of idiosyncrasy: a pea-shoot-and-watermelon-radish salad provides just the right edge of tartness to the greasier offerings, as does a beautifully balanced pickle garnish—sweet with a little chile—that accompanies several dishes.
Speaking of the “well-chosen wine list” we have added a bunch of new bottles for spring/summer and be sure to check in with us on Twitter where we are updating specials, the beer list, and our daily rotating selection of fresh east and west coast oysters!
