The sea has much to teach us—its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colorful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood and drinks at Goldfish Oyster Bar & Restaurant in Ossining, behind the Arcadian Shopping Center.
Goldfish Oyster Bar & Restaurant serves fresh seafood with a Mediterranean flare in a warm, relaxing atmosphere. Start with a selection of oysters on the half shell ($12 for six), including mildly salty Cape Shore, delicate Kumamoto, briny Salute, and sweet Beavertail. For entrees, choose between the seared scallops, which saunter across the plate with an entourage of asparagus, spinach, tomatoes, and a potato cake, topped with a Vin Cotto glaze ($22); or try the classic filet mignon, which is cozied up next to an herbed potato cake and broccoli rabe, and bathed in a garlic port-wine reduction ($28). Goldfish Oyster Bar & Restaurant features an open kitchen, live music on Friday nights, and a fully stocked bar that is ideal for feigned-indifference leaning.
Goldfish Oyster Bar & Restaurant
The chefs at Goldfish Oyster Bar & Restaurant cook fresh seafood with a Mediterranean flourish, earning Westchester Magazine's award for Best Prix Fixe in 2010. The raw bar's 17 types of mollusks converge from across the United States and Canada, including blue point oysters from Long Island and jorstad oysters from Washington. From the open kitchen, sights and sounds of baking shrimp, grilling steak, and searing tuna stoke the restaurant's lively ambiance.
Bartenders tend to a glowing blue bar, mixing cocktails and dispensing their trademark Goldfish crackers to luckless fishermen. On Friday nights, live music gets toes tapping and oyster shells clacking.
