The Winsor House at Island Creek Oyster Farm

They say it’s best to have oysters only in months that contain the letter “r,” but we wouldn’t blame you for craving Island Creek oysters year round. Luckily, Winsor House, the nationally renowned seafood company’s food and hospitality flagship, allows you to slurp down this delicacy from January through December. Even if you’re not hankering for something briny, the restaurant’s full menu of creative seafood dishes (think: delicate ghee-poached halibut) and the cozy, tavern-like atmosphere will keep you coming back for more.
