used to live in Boston for 12 years. Have since then moved to Asia. But will be visiting Irvine Orange County for 2 weeks next week.
I am looking for recommendations for 2 types of restaurants. When in Boston, 2 of our favorite places were an oyster bar called Neptune Oyster and a small, very creative (mostly French, but with lots of other influence as well) place called Craigie Street Birstrot/Craigie on Main.
Neptune Oyster has all sorts of very fresh oysters, and different light fares. I am not looking to eat fish at all (dislike cooked fish). Oysters is what i'm looking for, and delicious morsels. here's their menu if you are interested: http://www.neptuneoyster.com/menu.html
Craigie's menu changes a lot depending on what the chef gets that day. I'm not sure how i'd categorize the food. I do think it's more French than anything else. But I'm definitely not looking for classical French food. Anything creative, fresh, delicious would do. Here's the menu: http://www.craigieonmain.com/?page_id...
Thanks so much for the help!
