I took Josh to Joe Fortes for his birthday. It’s his first time to this venue. He loves oysters, and they also had buck-a-shuck going on alongside Happy Hour. It was packed, but the servers were nice enough to sit us down near the bar, and still have the happy hour menu.IMG_9429

Mmm! I love Parmesan fries! I originally read about Parmesan fries with truffles on Luxirare’s blog. She does the cheapskate version where she puts truffles on McDonald’s fries. I’m much too lazy to find truffles for myself, so whenever I go somewhere nice I get these or just the Parmesan variant. They just seem heartier and earthier, instead of being drowned in salt. So good!IMG_9430

The food and service was excellent. We had our share of cocktails, oysters (raw and prepared) and shrimp cocktails. Quite possibly the best place to stop in for lunch on a special occassion. 5/5
