Dining out with friends can foster healthy relationships that might otherwise be limited to impersonal group texts or overly personal bathtime visits. Get a bite in person with a person with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of seafood and gastropub fare at Canterbury's Oyster Bar & Grill in Oyster Bay.
The seafood-smiths at the newly renovated Canterbury's Oyster Bar & Grill array delectable mollusks from the East and West Coasts alongside gastropub entrees. Like the world's fastest glacier, a list of three to six regional oysters shifts each day and can charm palates with several serving styles, and chef Patrick Baldi explores unique shores by creating eight to ten special dishes a night. The oyster sampler ($27.95) sprinkles three each of the day's shellfish stars with cocktail, horseradish, and mignonette sauce, and the oysters casino ($13.95) caps five roasted oysters in a garnish of peppers, bacon, and asiago beside a heap of pommes frites. Guests seeking to appease eclectic appetites can summon the Canterbury mixed grill ($24.95), which mingles a grilled, marinated skirt steak with jumbo shrimp and a barbecue chicken cutlet. Seasonal dishes such as the blackened Montauk swordfish ($24.95) flit onto the specials menu, and 8-ounce sirloin burgers ($11.50) conspire with buttermilk battered chicken tenders ($10.95) to choreograph cheerleading routines in support of pub classics.
A calendar of open-mic nights and live music acts ensures that performers take their bows amid applause from fellow patrons and thunderous huzzahs from the restaurant's mounted photographs of Theodore Roosevelt.
