The Original Oyster

While in Jersey, I had the chance to, not only go to the beach (IN OCTOBER, yes! Who would have known!?) but also eat a lot of seafood. I was brought to ''The Original Oyster,'' a rustic restaurant set on the coast of New Jersey. You have the choice to eat either inside or outside on the deck (they even have a firepit where you can hang out and have a drink!). 

The food was exquisite. The seafood was really fresh (obviously because it is caught on a daily basis) and the service was great. They have many choices (even for the seafood haters, like my boyfriend), I had a really hard time to pick what I wanted to eat!! 

The prices are a bit high, it's not a place I would return every week (well, living in Montreal is also the second reason) but for the price you pay, the food was really good and the service was great.

Durant mon séjour à New Jersey, j'ai eu l'occasion, non seulement d'aller à la place (eh oui, durant le mois d'octobre!!! Qui aurais su?) et de savourer les fruits de mer. J'ai été souper au ''The Original Oyster'', un restaurant d'un décors très rustiques et vintage, situé sur le bord de la baie de Sandy Hook! On a le choix de se placer soit en dedans ou bien sur la terrasse (il y a même un feu de foyer avec des canapés extérieur pour boire!)

La nourriture était exquise, les fruits de mer étaient vraiment frais (elles sont livrées quotidiennement par les pêcheurs de la région) et le service était bien. Ils ont une grande variété de choix (même pour ceux qui n'aiment pas les fruits de mer, comme mon copain). J'avais de la difficulté à faire mon choix!!

Les prix sont quand même élevés, alors ça ne serait pas une place que je retournerais fréquemment (et aussi du fait que je suis de Montréal), mais pour le prix qu'on paye, la nourriture en valait vraiment la peine.
