Ringside Fish House, Portland, Oregon

Butter Poached Oysters

I had no idea if this place was going to be any good (838 SW Park Avenue, 503-227-3900). But we needed a quick bite after getting off the plane this afternoon, and most of the food carts in town were closed already. So I figured that a seafood place like this probably had a bar with a list of happy hour snacks, as well as local brews on tap. We went upstairs and found out that I was right.

We got a variety of items that we enjoyed, be it some fresh oysters on the half shell or a crabcake sandwich that featured a good amount of crab meat. The item above was what they called butter poached oysters, served crostini-style with a few bits of bacon. Best of all, these were at cheap happy hour prices, especially without any sales tax. I wonder how the proper dishes in the main restaurant taste.
