One of the great pleasures to be had from a visit to The Shelbourne is the option to enjoy an oyster, or six, or a dozen… Guests to Dublin’s favourite five star hotel certainly do love their oysters and consume dramatic quantities of this pearl among seafood, with over 35,000 of them sold at The Shelbourne last year!
Along with the chic black marble and seafood displays of the lavish Oyster Bar in The Saddle Room, where you can perch on one of the comfortable sea-blue leather stools and indulge your love of the oyster to your heart’s content, there is now also a new Oyster Bar menu available in No. 27 Bar and Lounge.
The new menu brings a selection of the same delicious oysters and seafood into the vivid and buzzing surroundings of No. 27 Bar & Lounge, the place to see and be seen, with its incredible potential for people watching, and now its extra opportunity for enjoying oysters too!
The new Oyster Bar menu in No. 27 at The Shelbourne serves a selection of oysters iced and on the half shell – Irish oysters, of course, the best in the world, from Carlingford, from Sligo and Galway Natives – served over crushed ice with the traditional accompaniments of shallot vinaigrette and Tabasco.
There’s also an interesting choice of hot oyster dishes, ranging from the classic Oysters Rockefeller to the signature Oysters Shelbourne, a fricassee of a half dozen freshly shucked oysters, Liscannor crab meat and lobster glazed with Hollandaise and Gruyère.
With a variety of platters, shrimp, lobster and crab dishes and wines and Champagnes by the glass, carefully chosen to complement the fresh, clean taste of the finest seafood, the new Oyster Bar menu in No. 27 at The Shelbourne is available daily from 12.00pm to 10.00pm.
