The Cove Cocktail and Oyster Bar Restaurant Review

: Evoking the bow of a pirate ship, the Cove's nautical-themed interior is defined by a long boat-shaped wooden bar complete with cotton sails and rope jutting from the wall. Oysters come on the half shell, Casino-style (cooked with bacon and sherry) or Rockefeller-style (topped with fresh spinach scented with herbsaint and Parmesan). Even pizzas may be topped with oysters, along with artichoke, bacon and goat cheese. Not a seafood fan? The Big Cheese is a grilled pizza with four cheeses and bacon, while vegetarians will enjoy the hummus pie. 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-style 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 chocolate truffle (gelato with a zabaione cream center) or the blonde butter brownie.
