Try out L&W Oyster Co.
I recently had a truly delightful lunch at L&W Oyster Co. Per Se alum David Belknap is whipping out refined seafood dishes with down-home comfort. Upon arrival to the table, guests are greeted with house-made goldfish crackers that could put Pepperidge Farm out of business. The menu has all the seafood classics you love but with a clever twist. One of my favorites was the lobster mac & cheese topped with bottarga, or shaved cured lobster roe. Nautical puns fill the menu like: Knuckle Sandwich, The Perfect storm, and Angry Crab.
The whole atmosphere of L&W Oyster Co. is interactive and cleverly designed. Magnetic words next to each booth, hanging mason jar candle lights, and decorative vintage nautical accessories make you feel as if your in the chicest cape-town shanty. A restaurant is only as good as the people who make it all happen and the staff at L&W could not have been more endearing, and knowledgeable. The menu changes daily based on fresh ingredients and chef Belknap’s creativity; it will surely have you coming back for seconds.
