THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Oceanaire Seafood Room Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Dining in grand style is what Oceanaire is all about. Built to resemble a luxury ocean liner from the 1930s, the restaurant delivers top-of-the-catch seafood, a pristine raw bar and professional service in a classy, sophisticated setting. Best bets include slurping any or all of the oysters of the day, followed by a snow-white filet of halibut paired with sweet corn and shrimp risotto or one of the tastiest bowls of clam chowder in town. Chef David Wiederholt also works miracles with bacon, pairing it with scallops, adding it into a tuna sandwich, crumbling it on clams casino and folding it into oysters Rockefeller. Now that's terrific surf ā€˜nā€™ turf. The Key lime pie is a treat---for three.
