Do oysters splash? We’re not sure, but Rappahannock Oyster Bar, which is seeking to make a splash on the West Coast, opened its doors, bringing a bit of an East Coast river to the Central City.
The latest culinary addition to the massive Row DTLA project, Rappahannock Oyster Bar offers up a line of seafood staples including lobster rolls, crab, clams and shrimp.
Then, of course, there are the oysters: Take a stool at the marble counter and munch on Chesapeake Bay-farmed oysters from the 125-year-old Rappahannock Oyster Co.
There is also a rotating selection of West Coast oysters. Chef Nick Erven oversees the menu that features small and large plates.
Studio UNLTD has packed an East Coast maritime theme into a quaint 500-square-foot space. Currently the restaurant is only offering lunch, but plans to expand into dinner service by the end of June.
