Just moved to Princeton, looking for oysters
I'm looking for the best oysters within an hour and a half's drive, preferrably under an hour. Any recommendations?
Blue Point Grill, Princeton.
The absolute best selection of oysters in the area - changes daily but typically about 8 types to choose from. Great fish and seafood as well. byob. Secure a reservation on opentable as it's always busy.
Enjoy and welcome to the area!
Or for do it yourself / take home, try the Metropolitan Seafood & Gourmet store in Lebanon, about a 40-45 minute drive north of Princeton. The proprietor, Mark Drabich, keeps several varieties on hand - east coast and west coast - and usually has one or two that are new to me. His guys will shuck them for you too. The best fish monger in that part of the state.
I don't eat oysters, but several people I've had dinner with at The Metropolitan at The Borgata said they were very good.
+1 for Blue Point Grill. My wife and I went there for our anniversary in May specifically for the oysters and were not disappointed.
