Alliteration is difficult with OystersSeptember 28, 2010
The days are getting shorter, the air is a bit cooler, and yet you desperately are trying to grasp onto those last fleeting moments of summer. What better way than to hop on over to the Terrace Bar bar Legal Sea Foods has set up in Harvard Square, order a Narragansett, and 6 oysters for $6 between the hours of 3pm – 6pm.
While Oysters are commonly thought of as a summer food, recent advances in aquaculture have made oysters safe to eat year round. Legal gives you the chance to enjoy some of the numerous local oyster varieties for a great price in a pretty relaxed setting (on the warmer days). The friendly and funny bartender was a real joy, keeping the beer and the conversation flowing.
The $1 oyster special rotates between a few varieties, so you can easily have a few different types in a weeks time. Served with cocktail sauce, horseradish, and what seemed to be pickled black pepper, these fresh briney treats were tasty with a little kick.
With wonderful service and a collection of really great oysters, it would be difficult to imagine a better after works snack.
