So let's start with Island Creek Oyster Bar. Their menu focuses on local oysters and seafood (you didn't see that coming did you?). We were seated in the formal dining room rather than the bar area which was buzzing with the after work crowd. Since we were in a celebratory mood, we began with glasses of bubbly.
Eastern Standard have the best cocktail sauce. I don't know what their secret is, but it's ridiculously good). For our entrees, my husband got fresh fish while I tried their popular Lobster Roe Noodles. The homemade pasta has an orange tint from the lobster roe, and the fresh noodles are tossed with generous hunks of lobster meat, brasied short rib, mushrooms, brussels sprouts, and grated pecorino. It's incredibly rich, but I powered through and cleared my plate. Delicious!
All in all, a great way to celebrate three wonderful years together. Here's looking forward to many, many more!
