Old World/New World Wine Dinner

Two chefs at The Oyster Bar will finally be presenting another wine dinner on Sunday December 2nd, 2012. Chef Joe and Chef Sean will be preparing a five course meal that they will carefully pair with five different wines that explore the European, or old world landscape of wines and end in California, or new world vineyards. I do not want to give specific items on the menu away, but I can say that the dishes will be very comforting and reminiscent of the holiday season. This will also be the first dinner that Joe and Sean will prepare on their own and they are sure to astonish guests with the five courses they have carefully been planning. If you have never been a part of one of the many Oyster Bar wine dinners it is truly an experience that will be remembered. Be sure to call today to make reservations as there is limited seating and seats do fill up quickly. Give yourself or loved ones an early holiday gift and join us at The Oyster Bar for a special event that will be talked about through the holiday season.

one fish, two fish, red fish, BARRAMUNDI???

Any chance I have, I like to bring in fish that may not be common to some of our guests.  Barramundi is an example of this and also happens to be one of my personal favorites.  This Australian fish, flaky white and as delicate as they come, is perfect for anything from broiling to grilling.  I just had a shipment delivered to me today and hope to have another for my weekend patrons. And as for the cheesy title to this blog ….. well, the only explanation is that I always get excited to play with this fish and create amazing features so needless to say, it makes me giddy as a schoolboy!!!!


As with most restaurants, we are rapidly approaching our busiest time of year.  As well as increased business in the actual restaurant, my catering availability also becomes limited.  So if you have a holiday party that needs planned, make sure to contact me as soon as possible!!!!


OYSTERS!!!  Although our menu consists of much more than this delicious treat of the sea… I feel that some of you feel a bit intimidated by what you are unfamiliar with.  In my opinion raw is the way to go, but we do offer a variety of baked and fried oysters that you can try before you let a raw one slide down the hatch.  Just check out how Erik’s experience went when The Fort Wayne Convention and Visitors Bureau sponsored his oyster extravaganza.
