Owner and chef Anthony Labriola casts a Mediterranean spell over his seaworthy dinner menu, which showcases fresh raw-bar offerings that include Alaskan king crab legs and oysters. Shucked oysters hailing from Connecticut, Cape Cod, Blue Point, and Prince Edward Island rise up from the sea to quell seismic tummy grumbles and steal their pearls back from unsuspecting guests. Alternatively, sizeable spiny legs sprawl out across dinner plates as guests crack shells to expose sweet crabmeat. Champagne bubbles flow from flutes to tickle the backs of throats and clear pipelines for crustaceous morsels. Caffe Regatta Oyster Bar & Grill boasts an elegant white-tablecloth-style atmosphere flecked with whimsical, nautical flourishes, such as a model sailboat that perches atop the glistening bar to flaunt its inability to displace lacquer.
Caffe Regatta Oyster
The brainchild of head chef Anthony Labriola, Caffe Regatta Oyster dresses traditional ocean critters in Mediterranean duds and packs oysters and other seafood into the raw bar that made a splash in Westchester Magazine. Friendly waiters scurry past white-clothed tables and nautical decor—including miniature boats and real-life sea captains perched on the full-service bar—bearing brunch, lunch, and dinner platters piled with refreshments ranging from lemon-ricotta hotcakes to a half pound of Alaskan king-crab legs. Summertime lures patrons to the outdoor patio, and BYOB Tuesdays give the restaurant's wine list a chance to collect its pages and prepare for another week of staring into thirsty eyes.
