After a contentious battle, a winner has emerged. The SHRIMP ROLL won! But since the votes were so close we are going to feature BOTH sandwiches on our menu when we open!⚡️⚡️Thanks so much for coming out last night and casting your votes!!! And thanks to the team at @foundation_bar for their help!
Ladies and gentlemen.... It’s bivalve vs crustacean at our sandwich showdown on July 25th. Join us as two classic dishes battle it out for a top spot on the @localsoysterbar menu. Our chef will do the cooking - all you have to do is eat and cast your vote. Dinner starts at 5pm @foundation_bar and ends when the food runs out. Spread the word....
We pulled out our fine china to plan layouts and shucking stations. Just a few more months until this bar is full of NC oysters and seafood. And matching china.
#viewfromthebar our contractor and his team are working hard to build out the bar and restaurant. In just a few months you’ll be sitting here eating raw NC oysters, sipping a cocktail, and munching on seafood specials. But you surely won’t be alone, tag the friends you want to join you!
We celebrate the tides & seasons of the sea. // Seafood is seasonal in the old North state, subject to changing water temps and tides. Our respect for this seasonality is what keeps the freshest seafood on your plate.
We celebrate coastal traditions. // “You couldn’t keep me off that water if you wanted to…” -Buddy, commercial fisherman in North Carolina
We celebrate the people who catch, harvest, grow, and produce our food & drink. // Adam of Core Sound Oyster Company checks on his oysters growing in Jarrett Bay, North Carolina.
We celebrate good food & drink. // Superbly shucked oysters, crab boils, fish fry-outs, lunch specials, and exquisite cocktails are just a few things you can expect from us. We’re looking forward to sharing good food with you every day.
