I wanted to make a restaurant that was different and unique on this island. Everything here was either Italian or everyone else served pasta. We wanted to focus on what makes LBI's food culture great, namely seafood. Traveling, I always admired French cuisine, the bistro culture, the heavy movement of people going in and out of a restaurant. The sound of chatter and plates moving.
In France I loved the simple family restaurants, the restaurants that served simple easy meals, nothing gaudy or grandeur. Just a good delicious meal. Here in LBI, getting the freshest ingredients is easy especially in this Garden State. The docks in Barnegat Light deliver the best seafood on the East Coast. We serve the best and freshest oysters on LBI, In fact we recycle our oyster shells so they can be reused for other oysters.
