Owner Daniel Meiser and chef James Wayman operate the Oyster Club out of a historic clapboard building. The duo procures seafood exclusively from Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, yet they use it in eclectic, globally influenced dishes like steamed mussels with a coconut-lemongrass broth, lime, and cilantro. With a menu that changes daily, it’s enough to keep the regulars guessing. The shaded outdoor deck (known as The Treehouse) overlooks Mystic River and serves oysters shucked to order.
