Neptune Oyster

June 2, 2010

August 1, 2009 | After a loooong walk, I arrived at Neptune Oyster (yelp), located in the North End, not too far from Giacomo’s.

I had intended on ordering the lobster roll and perhaps a small cup of chowder, but it was just way too hot.  Instead, I ordered a variety of local oysters.

The oysters were yummy!  I was surprised to see one of the sauces that came out– I’ve only ever had it with cocktail sauce, lemon, horseradish, and a dash of Tabasco sauce!  I did some googleing and I believe it was a classic mignonette sauce.  I can’t recall if I tried it or not.  After finishing the oysters, I ordered a blue fin tartar.

Mm, this was really good.  Very light.  Ordinarily, this probably wouldn’t have been enough for lunch, but it was just so damn hot outside that my appetite wasn’t like it usually is.   One day, I’ll go back and try the chowder and lobster roll!

    Yep, mignonette. You usually get both on the East Coast… first time I had it actually was on the west, though, in SF at Hog Island.

    Something on that menu caught my eye…blue marlin crudo from Costa Rica?? Sounds good… but talk about “one of these things is not like the others” 🙂
