Georgetown Knows Oysters
Hook, one of Georgetown’s premier seafood restaurants, has long been known for delivering the freshest of fresh fish, with sustainable, environmentally conscious sensibilities. The restaurant’s profound respect for the ocean’s harvest always comes through with an array of artful, creative, and crave-inducing dishes.
And now it is the hotspot for seafoodies after a long day at the office. Their new Oyster Happy Hour offers one dollar oysters at the bar and four dollar drink specials every Monday-Friday from 5 to 7 p.m.
It was only launched a couple weeks ago, but rest assured it is here to stay. Hook’s Chef Alex brings in oysters from the East and West coast of the country, which are currently both in the thick of their oyster harvest. These frigid ocean temperatures are where oysters thrive—and subsequently, so will we.
It’s sister restaurant, Tackle Box, has also just opened a new upstairs bar, Crackle Bar, who will soon begin a “High Seas Happy Hour.” The seafood offering includes oyster shooters and their signature fried and grilled calamari. You can also get beer for a buck fifty and $2 margaritas.
Between the new specials at Hook and Tackle Box, Canal Square’s Sea Catch restaurant offering up dollar oysters at happy hour, and Bourbon Steak’s first-class oyster platter, Georgetown is fast becoming a go-to destination for all of us who adore those briny little boogers. Cheers.
