ICOB (Island Creek Oyster Bar), I know you've heard it all before

but I have to rave about the special I had there with my daughter last night. It was pan seared scallops served over homemade pasta (tagliatele?) with grilled calamari and a kind of pomodoro sauce. The scallops were perfect, medium sized scituate scallops, the calamari tender and delicious, and the pomodoro sauce had an unusually good spicy kick for a restaurant of this size serving this volume: nice chunks of tomato, all in all really good. The service, as usual was fabulous: no problem splitting and order for the two of us. And, of course, beautifully shucked, delicous oysters. We had ICs, the wellfleet, falmouth and RI oysters ; still love the Creeks the best, though.
If you're in the neighborhood soon, and they still have that special.. don't miss it!
