It’s hard to put your finger on what makes new restaurant King Street Oyster Bar so special. It certainly could be the airy, modern space that feels as much like a cool loft apartment as it does a city bar. Most of the allure has to be from the food, with fresh seafood at the forefront of a New American menu. In addition to the signature East and West Coast oysters, King Street Oyster Bar has ceviche, lobster rolls, and po boy sandwiches that rival any specialty restaurant, plus tons of appetizers, salads, and meatier entrees to round out the offering. But the final piece of the puzzle has to be the prices. For a centrally-located DC establishment, King Street Oyster Bar has prices that make you do a double take. There are lots of options under $20, sides for just $5, and half-priced oysters during happy hour. For such high-end cuisine and sleek, modern ambiance, you could expect to pay much more. Find King Street Oyster Bar in the center of NoMa, just off North Capitol Street. Make a reservation, or join the waitlist via the restaurant’s Yelp page.
