I love to eat. I’m kind of a picky eater, I generally won’t try things that look squishy, slimy, or different. So, you can imagine it took years for me to try an oyster and they’re actually pretty good. But Saltwater has this magical mixture made of shallots, garlic, champagne vinegar, and lemon juice that adds something special to the already tasty oyster. I wanted to do a mini-review of the restaurant that focuses more on the ambience than the food itself.
(First off, they change their menu daily! We went two days in a row and had amazing meals both times)
(A mini patio is lit with Edison bulbs in antique looking wired frames)
(The restaurant itself is in a home restored to serve as a dining area complete with a porch)
(It is dimly lit with dozens of tea lights)
Quaint places like this are my favorite and in the city we certainly don’t have a shortage! But some of the best places are tucked away not so far from home.
this looks like the kind of place i would LOVE. i have never tried an oyster, but that is my on my list of things to do x
It’s so cute! And yes, be brave and try the oyster 😀
Oysters are never something that I wanted to try, but after this read… I am reconsidering! Especially with a great atmosphere 😉 Anything is doable with the right atmosphere!
Haha, I couldn’t agree more! Actually, I wrote a post about my first oyster experience here: https://iflunch.com/2012/09/20/you-can-shuck-it/
It was a ton of fun if you make it an activity with friends!
As you are/were with food, I am too. Oysters fit into this ‘slimy squishy’ category for me. They’re also raw. I’m not sure I can stomach them…. But, the menu does look very appetising. I could be convinced otherwise 🙂
The great thing about Saltwater is they have more “normal” foods too just in case you don’t find yourself up to try the oyster! 🙂
I’ll put it on the list of things to try in life. Worst case scenario, I eat the toppings off of the oysters. Or, as when one drinks shooters, I’ll order another meal to be my oyster chaser haha
Your photography is so beautiful! x
Thank you so much! 🙂
