A.W. Shucks Cocktail & Oyster Bar
The menu at this decades-old seafood spot jokes that “only otters eat fresher oysters,” and it’s not wrong. Come here for the real deal straight-off-the-boat or “Shuckefeller”-style broiled oysters for those not brave enough for the raw kind, plus seafood cocktails, crab cakes, and clam chowder. It’s a nice, laid-back place to huddle around some bivalves and pre-dinner drinks before moseying onto your dinner reservation. If you’re a fan of scotch, you’ll be in heaven here, with more than 130 types to choose from.
