After a recent trip to The Butcher Shop, it was only time to revisit Barbara Lynch’s B&G Oysters across the street to further round out our other Lynch Group experiences (BMH reviews of Sportello and No. 9). Service as always was impeccable and the staff was very knowledgeable.
The open kitchen and bar area is serene and the design has a great flow. We enjoyed observing the kitchen staff prepping for dinner service and creating our lunch.
The Arugula Salad blood orange, house ricotta, mint ($13) was refreshing. The bitterness of the rocket, sweetness of blood oranges and the light tang of the ricotta was a great combination.
The Yellowfin Tuna Tartare was fresh from the avocado,citrus and flavors were balanced. The sesame cracker was a nice touch, but the tartare was nothing special for $16.
Would love to return and try the B.L.T. With Lobster french fries, bread and butter pickles ($28) or the Maine Lobster Roll french fries ($27) when we are out for a special occasion and deeper pockets for lunch. The Meyer Lemon Tartlet candied lemon and thyme ($9) also looked lovely.
