One of the biggest changes Little Rock will see at the “new” Oyster Bar is a biggie – the oysters. Look for wood-grilled and baked oysters coming to the LROB from both coasts – think Oysters Rockefeller, Oyster Bienville, oysters with Coursey’s bacon from Coursey’s Smoked Meats in St. Joe (Searcy County), and more. “We’re zeroing in on perfection on our oyster recipes, and we’re shucking to order,” new owner Chris Tanner said.
The new Oyster Bar will also have something the old Oyster Bar lacked – an actual oyster bar. And the seafood offerings have been expanded to include fresh lobster, lobster roll, and caviar as just one part of the Oyster Bar’s new and greatly expanded menu. “We’re going to be oystered up!”
