Providence Oyster Recs
- jdubboston Apr 3, 2008 08:20 AM
Heading to Providence for the weekend for a wedding, staying in town (the Biltmore) but will have a car. We want to do lunch either Friday or Saturday, no preference either way, but want some great shellfish, a few beers and a convivial atmosphere (i.e. doesn't need to be fancy - love clam shacks on the shore and also love Neptune Oyster in Boston)
What would be our best choices for raw bar?
Thanks for the help!
McCormick and Schmick's in the Biltmore has a good raw bar. There's also Hemenways, which isn't too far away. Many people like the food, but I think it's just OK. M&S is much better IMO.
There's a place called Providence Oyster House on Atwells Ave. I've had good experiences there, if you're looking for something local and not a national chain.
