Pearl Oyster Bar: A Wonderful Lunch!!

Mr. W. | Nov 12, 1999 09:16 AM

Yesterday, I had off from my job, and wandered down to the Pearl Oyster Bar on Cornelia Street in the village. This simple marble bar with a table was just what the doctor ordered for a wonderful lunch. I started with 1/2 dozen perfect bluepoint oyster. These sparkling fresh oysters were served with a migionette sauce, some horseradish and lemons. They were redoulent of the ocean. I washed them down with a pint of Young's Oatmeal Stout, a slightly salty, thick, perfectly poured pint of brew. Next I received the Lobster Roll. Maine lobster, lightly tossed with mayo, celery and seasonings, stuffed into a buttered grilled hotdog roll, topped with a salad of mixed greens in a light vinaigrette. On the side of the plate was a veritable pile of shoestring: Belgian Style fries. I asked for malt vinegar and they had it!!!
Mostly everything is made in the 'scratch-house'. except the hot dog rolls, of course. The windows were fogged up with the steam of many bowls of steamed ipswich clams served with bowls of clambroth. YUM!
