The Oyster Club is a high-end seafood restaurant in that part of the city just south of the Public Garden that no one knows whether to call Back Bay, Bay Village, Downtown, or the Theater District. It’s a place with big leather chairs that will probably be pretty popular with business travelers and people paying with corporate cards who might call them “snazzy.” The menu is pretty standard for a New England seafood place, with a little bit of a throwback bent thanks to things like oysters rockefeller and lobster casserole. It’s all perfectly fine food, but there are plenty of other seafood restaurants nearby that are better and more fun.
