The Oyster Bar is coming to Santa Fe Station on Rancho Drive in late January.
The Oyster Bar has been a very popular fixture at Palace Station since 1995 It is not unusual for diners to wait for up to an hour for one of the 18 seats at the bar and it has become a destination for many foodies over the years.
The Oyster Bar at Santa Fe will offer a selection of pan roasts (fresh seafood sautéed with Brandy, cream and tomato, served with steamed rice), gumbo (a tasty Creole soup made with a variety of seafood, okra and Andouille sausage, served with steamed rice), clam chowder (Manhattan and New England selections), cioppino (fish stew prepared with shrimp, crab, cod, mussels and clams) seafood jambalaya (shrimp, crab, lobster, Andouille sausage, mussels and clams) and fresh oysters on the half shell. Frosty beer, spirit and wine offerings will also be available to complement The Oyster Bar experience.
The new location will be slightly bigger than the one at Palace Station. Twenty-one guests will be able to sit at the bar and watch their dishes being made-to-order and cooked right in front of them. There will also be a few tables for diners to enjoy their meals.
The Oyster Bar at Santa Fe Station will open for dinner at 5 p.m. nightly.
