Liv's Oyster Bar Restaurant Review

: With its exposed brick walls, well-spaced seating and a dining area set off from the bar where a showcase of freshly shucked oysters and seafood sits on ice, Liv's is a tasteful take on the usual raucous oyster bar. While starters include an array of clams and other raw bar selections, the kitchen delivers on other appetizers, too, including soups like New England clam chowder with bacon, chives and buttermilk biscuits, and a fall squash composition with duck confit, caramelized apples and spiced crème fraîche. Entrées emphasize seafood, such as a jumbo lump crab cake with Southwest flavors. Nevertheless, meat and poultry dishes, like chicken saltimbocca and a panko-crusted cutlet duo, are just as worthy. Desserts are inventive with creative takes on the classic crème brûlée. The wine list offers everything from a dry Chardonnay to a sweet Riesling for an appropriate dessert pairing.
