Black Crescent Restaurant Review

: Set in a space that housed the restaurant Alias for about two decades and named for an oyster farm the proprietors own, Black Crescent is a cocktail bar that offers seafood. Originally, the intent was to serve drinks and oysters only, but the kitchen has expanded the menu. There’s zesty Peruvian ceviche (fluke with sweet potato), crispy charred octopus and pastrami-smoked salmon carpaccio as well as options like seafood laced po’ boys and lobster rolls. And, of course, plenty of oysters. Tipples include a Negroni-like Hempen Halter and classics such as the Manhattan and (gin) martini. The wood-clad interior and low lighting give the place a let’s-order-another-round ambience.
