Foursquare Tips

  • Get the lambs & clams. Chef Dylan Fultineer pairs Olde Salt Middleneck clams with sauteed, grass-fed lamb for this stick-to-your-ribs stew.
  • Try all three kinds of raw oysters! You won't be disappointed!
  • Get the lamb and clams!
  • Get the Old Bay-seasoned steamed shrimp and, if available, pair it with Flying Dog Dead Rise ale!
  • The cantaloupe & duck prosciutto salad is a must
  • Steamed Olde Salt clams are fantastic. The sake broth... oh man.
  • Do your self a favor and try the sazerac and oyster shooters.
  • It is better to only go with one or two people and not a big group because it is always VERY crowded
  • Now having the Seared Scallops w/ fingerling potatoes, arugula, aIoli. It's even more awesome than the awesome Bobcat Oyster Chowder w/ Benton's Bacon!
  • Great little oyster bar tucked in Union Market. Oysters and tartare were outstanding.
  • Try the black cod if you aren't in mood for local oysters. It's nice, supple, light and not too expensive to boot.
  • The oysters are always good, but don't skip the shrimp!
  • Rappahannock was an incredible pitstop between snacking on gourmet treats from every vendor. Snag a chair on a weekend day, and complete the experience with at least a dozen oysters and a cold beer.
  • Have to try the lamb and clams, and the seared scallops. But make sure to start off with an oyster shooter and 1/2 dozen olde salt oysters.
  • Amazing sazerac....
  • Best crab cake I have EVER had.
  • The crab cakes are delicious!
  • Having the Barcat Oyster Chowder, and it's awesome!
  • Great oysters. Shrimp and grits special was excellent.
  • Right in the heart of the market, with a counter top and tall tables for casual oyster slurping. Always fresh and delicious.
