Shucks Oyster & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Atlanta restaurateur Tom Catherall considers this a family-run operation as all of the Catherall offspring work here: Tara, Ryan (as chef), Kathleen and Nick. The chalkboard lists the oyster selection of the day, with Gulf oysters always on the menu and offered for $6 a dozen Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m., making it urgent that one leave work promptly to cash in on the deal. House-made sauces include a tart mignonette, a reduced soy-based number that might be okay on tempura-fried oysters, but not raw ones; and a pepper sauce more conducive to the consumption of greens than oysters in our view --- we prefer a straightforward lemon. Cooked versions include Rockefeller and two other dishes that seemed over-embellished. Follow these morsels with a cup of soup and a half sandwich; we like the rich five-cheese on grilled bread. Desserts include a Key lime or ice box pie. The wine list, for an establishment that considers itself a wine bar, isn't very frisky, but the Cremant de Loire from Clos de Quarterons enjoys the company of a cold oyster very nicely.
