Ryleigh's Oyster Bar

We intended to go for happy hour oysters while the kids hit Matsuri but arrived after 7:00, too late for happy hour. Anyway we tried the blue points and peconics(?) and the grilled calamari. The oysters were fresh and tasted of the ocean. The squid was browned and tender served on a chick pea puree with a balsamic reduction; tender with a touch of sweet. The calamari combo worked surpisingly well. The shucker was rather slow so luckly there weren't many oyster eaters there. This place does not have the look and feel of what I'd expect from an oyster bar but the food was very good and I'd go back especially for the $1 oyster happy hour.

We ended the night with a little sushi from Matsuri. An Oriole roll (spicy tuna and avacodo inside with salmon outside) and tuna, yellowtail and salmon sashimi. Very good eats. All and all a nice night out on a cold rainy Thursday.
