Although I'm native to Florida, seafood was never a favorable meal option growing up. Not only was the smell of fish intolerable, but you would certainly never eat something that came from the water.
Well, like most people, I grew up and discovered I actually really enjoyed eating seafood. Oysters are at the top of my list of favorite dishes.
I've heard rave reviews about the Central Avenue Oyster Bar. I decided to give it a whirl this week. Instead of indulging at dinner time, I went around lunch time.
The service was efficient and I was in the mood for the restaurant's signature item: oysters. After getting the scoop on the different options (mexican, chipotle, rockefeller) I landed on the Blue Cheese Oysters. The plate is complete with six fresh oysters baked with chunks of blue cheese, served with fresh lemon.
For $9.95, a single serving (6) of oysters from the establishment on Central is well worth the meal. And for $12.95, patrons can enjoy a sampling (9) of three different types of oysters.
Central Avenue Oyster Bar is located at 249 Central Avenue.
