Rodney's Oyster House

Fodor's Review

A den of oceanic delicacies, this playful basement raw bar is frequented by solo diners and showbiz types. Among the options are soft-shell steamer clams, a variety of smoked fish, and "Oyster Slapjack Chowder," plus Merigomish oysters from Novia Scotia or perfect Malpeques from owner Rodney Clark's own oyster beds on Prince Edward Island. A zap of Rodney's in-house line of condiments or a splash of vodka and freshly grated horseradish are eye-openers. Shared meals and

half orders are okay. Be sure to ask about the daily "Grace's soup" and "white-plate" specials.

Closed For The Time Being

They are moving, I think. So check first to see if open. Disregard rating, could not eat there.
