Casamento's Review

Casamento's has been a haven for Uptown seafood lovers since 1919. Family members still wait tables and staff the immaculate kitchen in back, while a reliable handful of oyster shuckers ensure that plenty of cold ones are available for the standing-room-only oyster bar. Specialties from the diminutive menu include oysters lightly poached in seasoned milk; fried shrimp, trout, and soft-shell-crab platters; and fried oysters, impeccably fresh and greaseless, served between thick slices of white toast. Everything is clean, and nothing is superfluous. Even the house plants have a just-polished look.

    The Definition of a Neighborhood Joint

    If you lived in the neighborhood and you loved oysters, fresh or fried, you'd make Casamento's part of your regular rounds. Like any neighborhood joint, there's somes that likes it and somes that don't, but you have to respect a place that closes down from Memorial Day through Labor Day because the oysters just don't make it in the hot summer months.
