The Cove Cocktail and Oyster Bar Restaurant Review

: A long boat-shaped wooden bar, complete with cotton sails and rope jutting from the wall, evoking the bow of a pirate ship defines The Cove's nautical-themed interior. Oysters on the half shell may come Casino-style (cooked with bacon and sherry) or Rockefeller-style (topped with fresh spinach scented with herbsaint and Parmesan). Avoiding seafood? Pizzas with inventive toppings, such as the Binghampton (horseradish cream and spicy Italian beef) or the T’s Shrimp Pizza (red sauce, shrimp, cheese, pesto), provide alternatives. The limited wine selection offers a few moderately priced labels, but the Cove is known for its inventive cocktails, such as a traditional New Orleans Sazerac or Pimm’s Cup. And the Vampire (a Bloody Maria served with sriracha hot sauce and balsamic vinegar) might have you sweating in your seat. For dessert, we suggest the blonde butter brownie.
