What You'll Get
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 $25, you get $50 worth of fine dining and drinks at Caffe Regatta Oyster Bar & Grill in Pelham.
Caffe Regatta's Mediterranean-influenced menu centers on eight types of oysters ($2 each)—including Blue Point, Prince Edward, WellFleet, and Cape Cod Island—but it also serves a parade of lobster, pasta, steaks, and more. Snorkel through a plate of exotic crispy-skin yellowtail snapper served with clams, chorizo, fennel, fava beans, tomatoes, and garlic swimming in a saffron broth ($23)—or stick to the land with the classic 24-oz. aged bone-in rib eye snuggled up next to garlic mashed potatoes and spinach ($28). Every dish can be matchmade with a wine list of whites, rosés, and reds served by the bottle, by the glass, and by the Super Soaker from several tables away. Tuesdays are BYOB at the white-tablecloth eatery, so bring a bottle of low-fat milk and admire Caffe Regatta's nautical-themed décor speckled with miniature sailboats and killer whales.

About 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.
