DeMun Oyster Bar

The menu offers detailed descriptions of the flavor, texture and even the shape and depth of the shell of the varieties most commonly flown in, but the roster varies from day to day.

The interior of the Demun Oyster Bar has an intimate Parisian feel. The floor (vintage circa 1880) was imported from France, while the mirrors and bar are local touches.
