The next time you need an oyster head over to North in Luongo Square and try the Salt Pond oysters (fresh from Salt Pond Oysters down in South Kingstown). I just polished off a dozen that were brimming with briny oyster liquor; about half I slurped down straight and the rest I dosed with the kimchi vinegar and squirts of lemon. A housemade hot sauce is also available.
Tonight’s shucker, Jen, worked swiftly and opened them clean; oysters are served in an ice-filled channel right in the bar. Oysters — 6/$12.
Don’t necessarily limit yourself to the oysters, there’s a lot to like on this menu. And for every dish sold, North donates 50¢ to the R.I. Food Bank.
North, open seven nights 5:30pm to midnight/also, Sunday brunch 11am to 5pm, 3 Luongo Square, (directions)
