From the wowing women who brought us The Woods (the Foodie Forks winners of best new bar for 2015), The Walrus, like The Woods, is focused on freshness and seasonality. Only this time it's pertaining to seafood! Oysters in particular. In addition to a rotating selection of fresh oysters, there will be new ways of enjoying them–such as with special sauces and toppings and cooked with different methods.
Also key is the drink element (obviously)–pairing the food with an all-new series of bottled cocktails from The Woods, wine, and beer.
