Suggestions for a good raw bar in the Cape? Nantucket?

NYC29 Aug 6, 2009 11:51 AM

Does anyone have some suggestions for a good raw bar in the Cape? We're also taking a day trip out to Nantucket and would love to have an oyster feast lunch somewhere! Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Nantucket 2010, house guests, trip to Island planned but have not been in sooooo long. The fast boat, bus tour, lunch and the shops. Would appreciate any comments & rec's for lunch.

      I'm not an expert, but it seems that variety is lacking on the Cape. Many big city raw bars will offer several varieties of oysters and clams, while the Cape concentrates on Wellfleets (natch) and Littleneck clams. This is not a bad thing. Of the places I tried, two restaurants with the word "oyster" in them were best - Impudent Oyster in Chatham, and Wicked Oyster in Wellfleet. Both had great food and service as well. I guess there has to be a more sophisticated raw bar out there somewhere, I'm just not sure where.

        The Oyster Company on 28 in Dennisport serves up several local varieties of oysters including from their own Sesuit Neck farm.
