Need to get out of Manhattan!!
Hi all -
I have some free time next week and don't have anything planned at all. My bf and I would like to get out of the city for a day or two. Any suggestions? We both LOOOOVE lobster rolls and oysters, so we would def make the trek to go somewhere outstanding.
Rowayton Seafood has a really good lobster roll (north-bound exit 12 off I-95. hang a right at the stop sign and drive another mile or so). eat on the porch (it's closed in and heated for the winter) or inside near the fireplace; no matter, it's all good. Great views of the Five Mile River and the Sound. Start with a vodka gimlet and a half-dozen bluepoints. This is a casual place; pricey but well worth it.
There was a recent post on a place that is supposed to have good lobster rolls: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...
It's called The Beach House in Old Greenwich. Not sure how their oysters are.
But, the Oyster House on Elm St. in Greenwich is quite good. Been a few years, but people are still recommending it and I love it. Plus, Greenwich Ave is a good place to walk around when you want a respite from manhattan...
