Quick lunch at this Puget Sound institution: Taylor Shellfish Farms.
Had business downtown near the Capitol Hill location. The space is small and is the definition of an oyster bar. The fresh tanks are centrally placed and the service was quick and excellent.
Obviously the thing to have here are the raw oysters and several types are available. In addition, the oyster soup is a good choice especially on a cold day. For those not into bivalves they do have fresh crab and if you don’t like seafood but happen to stumble through the door there is a Beecher’s cheese toast option as well.
