GT Fish & Oyster Restaurant Review

: A reclaimed surfboard for a bar top; a giant-size drawing of a fish on the wall; sailing artwork signed with “GT”; hot sauces and fish: you'll get that and plenty more at GT Fish & Oyster, another outpost in Boka Restaurant Group’s growing enterprise. It has all the trappings of an authentic East Coast seafood house, one brought up to modern day speed. That means a little steel accenting here, a little black-and-white tiled floor there, some sleek windows and interior glass panes --- not to mention a nice view beyond the craft cocktail and brew-focused bar into the kitchen, where Giuseppe Tentori presides. The lobster roll and bacon-rich, chunky clam chowder in a Mason jar are stand-outs on the small plates menu, while über-fresh East and West Coast oysters, as the restaurant’s name suggests, may surpass those at neighboring steakhouses. Then again, you could always try the beer battered fish ‘n’ chips or monkfish with quinoa, celery root purée, apple and chestnuts. Meals continue with desserts like a double apple pie with butter pecan ice cream. Since this is a scenester's paradise, you'll be lucky to snag one of the few coveted seats at the bar or counter, so make a reservation.
