City Oyster Restaurant Review

: This oh-so-chic spot draws the young and trendy to its contemporary dark-wood bar. The place is sort of Soho-meets-Delray Beach, with an exposed brick wall and pressed-tin ceiling. Food is primarily seafood, with strong Asian overtones. Starters are intriguing. A delicate dim sum selection and creative moo shu scallops (four skewered scallops on bok choy) satisfy. Unfortunately, it's downhill from there, where grilled swordfish with a polenta is overcooked, while the flavorful lobster risotto, adorned with scallops, is too moist. Oysters as starters were also a disappointment. Hot apple crêpes, Grand Marnier cheesecake and fresh sorbets for dessert, though, were outstanding. The extensive wine list contains a wide range of mostly commercial, moderately priced selections.
