  1. If you mean "the Oyster House that is ON Sansom Street, but is no longer called The Sansom Street Oyster House" then yes, it is open. Nom away!

    1. Hellz yeah! The Oyster House is open. I can't wait to go back soon. It's not the old SSOH (thank the food gods!). The regular menu and raw bar are both awesome. And Katie Loeb (sp?) is the bartendrix - make sure you try some of the oyster sliders and the Oyster House punch. The Oysters rockefeller is really great. And the Fisherman's stew and the Lobster roll. Let's just say, I enjoyed everything we ordered.

          2. today's Metro paper has 2 articles about this resto - one on page 4, an interview with the owner. the other is pg 13 just a bit by Arthur Etchells about its opening. says more can be found on
