Why Should I Go? Oyster Bay is one of those restaurants you know is going to be good, even before you take a bite or read a stellar review. It’s one of those spots that has all the signs…
1. It’s not the kind of place that snags you with a waterfront view. And it’s not inside one of the restored mansions or B&Bs that draw tourists with their history. It’s just a simple building, a little off the beaten path. And it’s STILL busy.
2. Oyster Bay attracts locals as well as tourists, always a good sign. And their expanded bar offers a cozy atmosphere and its own menu.
3. Chef Chris Holl is also the owner, meaning he cares that much more. The meat/seafood combos at Oyster Bay are varied, so you can try something new, even when ordering an old favorite. Filet mignon topped with jumbo lump crab meat anyone? He and wife Jerry also could have slapped together some kitschy decor, but this wouldn’t have cut it, either. All the nautical tschotskes have been hand-selected with purpose, and you can tell.
Insider Tip: Parking meter? Psssh, what meter? There are plenty of free spots at Oyster Bay — as many spots as martinis.
