Matunuck Oyster Bar, South Kingstown, RI.
If “farm to table” is your bag, then you can’t do better than Matunuck Oyster Bar, which serves “pond to plate” oysters straight from a seven acre aquaculture pond nearby. While the place features excellent soups, lobster rolls, seafood pastas, and grilled fish, the real reason you should stop here is to check out the world-class raw bar. Grab an oyster sampler ($21.95) – a dozen local varietals all served together – and take in a sunset over the water where, until very recently, your meal was growing up. If you’re feeling truly decadent, you can add a bottle of champagne and make it the “Cliquot and Dozen” combo.Back to top
