Island Creek Oyster Bar Burlington

Island Creek Oyster Bar opened their second location in Burlington and have now started serving lunch.

They are located in the newly created The District area.

The refined and elegant bar area with an enormous bar and modern high-tops.

The dining room is no less elegant and well lighted from the big windows. The tables are well spaced, and even when they got busy, the noise level was fine.

Very pleasant place settings. The bread was nice but the Cajun and Honey whipped butter with salt on top was excellent. What a nice touch!

With a name like ICOB, you need to have some oysters, right? Island Creek, Blish Point, Oyster Pond and some Littlenecks. Everything was perfectly shucked and super fresh. The littlenecks were probably my favorite, very tasty.

SALMON TARTARE ($12) with cucumber, sesame, chive was outstandingly good. There was a hint of heat in the tartare, and that made it soo tasty. The potato and sweet potato chips were also very good, and I don't even like sweet potatoes. Best dish of the day.

LOBSTER BISQUE ($10) with Brown Butter and Lobster Knuckles. This was pleasant, but the knuckle was a bit chewy.

And now here is their famous LOBSTER ROLL ($32) with rosemary roll, kettle chips. Rosemary can be strong, but there was just a hint of it in the roll. Lots of lobster, including tail meat, that was very light dressed and mixed with some really fine minced red onion, celery and pickles.

And here is the namesake, the oyster bar.

Address 300 District Avenue, Burlington MA 01803
