Fishing pub meets restaurant - that's the ingenious idea behind the Walrus and the Carpenter. This bustling neighborhood restaurant specializes in oysters and other seafood dishes. Using nothing but the freshest ingredients, Chef BJ Bresnik creates seasonal food. The Walrus and the Carpenter also serves wine, smart cocktails, beer and cider. It makes an ideal after-hours hangout spot. Enjoy some fried oysters with a cold beer, surrounded by cozy rustic furnishings. If you prefer an alternative to seafood, look no further than the steak tartare, which comes with thinly sliced rye toast and egg yolk. Launched in 2010 to rave reviews, The Walrus and the Carpenter is open daily between 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Take advantage of happy hour for great deals on beer and wine between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday through Thursday.
