I had yet another wonderful meal at Oyster House! You’re likely tired of hearing me talk about how much I love this place, but I, am not tired of eating there so you’re going to have to deal with that for just a bit longer (or forever!). My dinner date and I started with a dozen buck-a-shuck oysters (available during Happy Hour).
We decided to try something new and opted for the (almost hidden on the menu) Clam Bake for Two, at the suggestion of our awesome server, Roxanne. We were SO HAPPY we took her advice! Out of this world. Side note: don’t be embarrassed to ask what the heck is going on w/ the extra “part” on the clams. These are not littlenecks… they’re longnecks. Which means… there’s an extra appendage, of sorts. Okay, just look:
Turns out you actually have to (well, it’s recommended as to not eat any extra sand that may be lurking) peel back the dark outer casing. And then… it’s super good! It was a little… humorous at first, but these clams are quite tasty! Enough about that. Look at this lobster! Kale! Potatoes! Sausage! Mussels!
After we devoured this perfect meal, we decided, “hey why not just go totally over the edge and get dessert”? I mean we were already several cocktails in ($5 punch during HH!), and everything else was already a home run so we decided to throw caution to the wind and go with the Coffee Toffee Ice Cream which was more like a gelato and was AH-MA-ZING.
Oyster House for the win… again!
