Supper at the Ocean House

For the girls to meet for dinner, it's usually easiest to choose a spot further north than we normally might venture from the farm. That makes the drive about halfway for SCF and the Tarrytown/Irvington contingent and the Cold Spring contingent. Today we chose the Ocean House, a lovely BYO seafood restaurant in Croton. The oysters were divine.

5t's a cute little room with a banquette along one side and tables on the other. There's a small bar, but, it being BYO, nobody really sits there. Except perhaps on the weekends when I'm told the wait can be interminable.

Kelli and I were on one side of the table, Melanie and Marissa on the other:

We ordered some oysters and clams to start off. What I liked best besides how fresh and plump they were was that the oysters were from places I don't normally see around here, like Maine. And Nova Scotia. That was very nice indeed.

The clams were steamed:

We also shared fried oysters served with a spicy aioli.

And the kitchen, having recognized me, sent out a seafood stew:

And a tuna tartar:

For our mains, Melanie got the branzino. It was done perfectly and the tomato and olive sauce was not too overpowering:

Marissa had the trout:

Kelli got the scallops:

And I had mussels with green curry:

And fries.

Seriously, not a miss in the bunch. Everything was fabulous.

Chocolate cake for dessert.

And because we brought our own wine, the bill was pleasant to boot. Fun was had all around.
