The Oceanaire Seafood Room Restaurant Review: A boisterous crowd frequents Oceanaire, where a retro design exudes the feel of a 1930s-style oceanliner. The oyster selection is impressive, and includes Malpeque (Prince Edward Island), Coromandel (New Zealand) and Bluepoint (New York). Classics like escargots en croûte or shrimp cocktail made with giant tiger shrimp are good starters. For entrées, we like the bold flavors of the pan-roasted Scottish Loch Duart salmon (served with lardons, roasted cipollini, mustard greens and Dijon beurre blanc) as well as the Mano de Leon hand-harvested scallops (red miso and shiitake mushrooms). The Drunken Local Harpooned Swordfish may have a silly name but is flavor-packed with its smoky almonds, port cherries and sage brown-butter sauce. Side dishes are immense, so remember to share. We’re not crazy about the gargantuan hash browns à la Oceanaire; instead we prefer the Yukon Gold mashers and salt and vinegar fries. Desserts are retro-Americana: selections include Key lime pie and warm cookies with milk.
