When I get a strong craving for fresh, ice cold oysters and clams on the half shell, I know exactly where to go to have some of my absolute favorite raw bar classics at a fair price. Remington Tavern offers great happy hour drink specials and food specials throughout the week and features live music every Monday, & Wednesday from 6-9pm! Every Monday catch Beatles, Burgers & Beer (Bears Beets Battlestar Galactica?) with Geno McManus and Frank Grizanti and their Seafood, Soul & New Jack Swing every Wednesday featuring Michael DiSanto and Ali Critelli.
But what you really need to know about is Remington’s Raw Bar. Oyster Happy Hour happens every Tuesday from 4:30 – 7pm where you get a dozen oysters for $20.
Wednesday is clam night where they’re serving up a dozen, prepared a few different ways – raw, steamed, or clams casino for $10! Wondering about quality? I was really impressed with the salty, briny flavors of the raw shellfish, the crystal clear liquid signifying the freshness and their phenomenal shucking skills resulting in minimal shellage. My personal favorite way to dress a clam is with celery salt, hot sauce, and lemon juice. Shout out to the waitress at Boston Hotel that got me hooked on that beautiful trio of toppings in the first place.
This raw bar is 💯 worth checking out.
Pro tip: Don’t forget to head back on Sundays when select bottles of wine are on special for $25.
