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.

Welcome Scott Dickmeyer and Shannon Baugher!

As some of you know, The Oyster Bar has gone through a recent transition with our executive chef position. We would like to say thank you to Matt for seven great years and sincerely wish him the best in his new endeavor. Now we want you to meet our new Executive Chef – Scott Dickmeyer!

Scott was formerly Executive Chef at Orchard Ridge before their temporary shut down and ownership change. For the last nine years Scott has been the Banquet and Catering Chef at Fort Wayne Country Club. We are thrilled and honored to have the opportunity that Scott will present for us.

We would also like to welcome Shannon Baugher to our kitchen staff! Shannon was the former chef at Bourbon Street. We look forward to Shannon complementing our already stellar staff.

Fort Wayne Favorite

ArtRageous

I am proud to announce that The Oyster Bar will be catering this year’s Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s annual Gala event.  After a series of interviews and tastings we were finally chosen over some of Fort Wayne’s other top restaurants to cater one of our cities largest dining events.  I must say, the menu that I have created will definitely be something to talk about:)

THE OAKRIDGE BOYS

The Oakridge Boys came in for dinner last night and this was a pic of their tour bus.  I have to say, they are some of the most down to earth good ol’ boys I have ever met.  And yes, Elvira has been stuck in my head ever since!!!!

happy holidays

I hope that everyone is as thankful and appreciative for Thanksgiving with family, friends, and FOOD as I am.  Enjoy and be safe!!!!
