Oysters! Elm Street Oyster House in Greenwich, CT

My friend E is a foodie and she selected the Elm Street Oyster House in Greenwich, CT. It could not have been a better choice. The oysters made me want to sing. If you had a hankering for oysters, this is the place to come. My favorites were the Onset from MA. #oysters

We had a dozen between the two of us. Half from the east coast and half from the west coast. I learned that I don’t need the sauces when the oysters are this good. It’s a very sexy sensation to eat the oysters… Em.

Onset from MA was clean, fresh, and smooth. Kumamoto from CA was creamy like dessert in seafood form. These are our favorites.

Hickory Flour Fried Calamari: Seems simple and standard, right? Wrong! When the seafood is this fresh, it elevates the food. I cannot help but eat more and more.

Seafood Chili: This is not Chili. I was so against ordering this dish when I read it on the menu. Felt repulsed by the thought of seafood cooked with beans. But I could not be more wrong. It felt like an American version of seafood bouillabaisse. The calamari and scallops were fresh and the tang from the tomato sauce complements the seafood well. The cheese on top adds the connection and thickens the texture a bit. And there are no beans!  Kind of perfect actually. I am glad E made me do it.

It was an excellent meal, sitting with a great friend eating oysters with French fries at the bar. Thank you E for teaching me to eat them together!  Thank you for a fun-filled night.   🙂

Fresh Air Market Goodness

They taste like they were caught this morning, cooked and then came to the market. Thick and long prawns, snails with garlic and chili, and fried squid.
